Abstract Painting

Many would say that abstract art is just paint thrown on the canvas.  I used to be in that camp until I tried it a few times.  I usually end up with a muddy mess.  It is hard to get something abstract that also is interesting to look at.  

So occassionally, I try.  It's kind of fun.  I  throw something down until  that something catches my eye and starts to symbolize something more than just paint on a canvas. 

So while I agree the abstract is  an exercise of just throwing the paint down. I also have learned that there is a lot of artistry in *how* you throw it down. 

This looks like something to me.  What does it look like to you?
