Yep I really did an abstract painting and I enjoyed doing it. I have to admit listening to classical music helps set the mood for color choice and style. I started with some old board game cards and pasted them all over the canvas with gel medium, then 2 coats of gesso. I dug out my stash of decorative papers and scissors, match some paper and the colors I wanted to use and went to town. Sometimes I wish I could just stay up all night and keep right on a going..haha!
