Fascination 4"x4" oil

I started with a big piece of gessoed and toned canvas and had my 3 year old granddaughter help me paint big brush marks on it.  Then, after it dried, I cut the canvas into 4"x4" squares and worked each one as I was inspired by the remaining marks of the original.  This was a "fascinating" process for me and really loosened me up and helped me see where I would like to go with abstracts.  I may take all of this series and frame them together as a mosaic.  I will post it if I decide to do this.
