Sometimes when I feel like painting but can't quite get started I just grab an old canvas and scrape a few new colors over it here and there to see if anything pops or inspiration strikes. Often it doesn't and I just spend a lot of time relaxing into the process. Far from being a waste of time,it makes me feel better and I find these paintings make useful backgrounds for a lot of my florals.
I haven't got any photos yet but will shoot a few tomorrow and will add them to the blog.
I'm still not sure if this one's going to go anywhere but here's the picture of how it looks so far.
