Painting for Real.

 Quote by Picasso:
"There is no abstract art.
You must always start with something.
Afterward you can remove all traces of reality."

So I have started...
I've taken inspiration from my old paintings below, painted 10 years ago.
As for dots to go for small or mini - by tooth pick.
I'm not sure .....

Doodle Day..

All about dots. 
About taking time on an A4 scrap of paper.

It takes ages and is boring, especially when I have just grabbed the nearest colour. What is the point? There isn't any other than it takes you away from the point of it - 

Painting for real on the big white canvas !

 Starting to Paint: Thinking Abstract

 So I found something old -
Something  I didn't like and added more, then scraped some away and added more. 
Will I paint like this - No, but there is something there - In the old and that is already there in memory  that is trying to find the light - trapped in fog. Maybe more about a feeling of change in my art finding a new direction and not knowing were it will take me and the anxiety  along the way...... Out of the Grey.
