First Strokes

First Strokes, originally uploaded to Flickr by Ontario Wanderer.

I had an art class challenge. Paint on a 5 x 6 foot canvas. With something this large it will take me a while to finish. (Some of the other students are already finished.) This is the background and the first two "strokes." I've quite a ways to go yet. I made several abstract drawings on paper and then looked at small sections of the drawings in order to set up my idea for this canvas. I am assuming that in the end I can cut the canvas again, if I wish, to change the composition again. Could be interesting. If all else fails, I can paint over it.
