My plan was to apply two colours to the canvas and work on blending them near the centre. When I stood back to see how it was coming along...where did that come from? No matter how hard you try to make something so abstract that it's unrecognisable, the brain kicks in with a comment like, "Oh, I know what that is."

Hi Alfred

I tried painting with a credit card and all these evil looking clowns would appear.  I was really spooked when other people started noticing them.  Then it stopped.  Strange how stuff like that happens.  Makes you wonder.  Anyway you have got a nice landscape going at least that is what I see.  Jean Weymouth

love the contrast, maybe a set orange sun or white moon.

foreground, middle and background are very dynamic.
