Goose and Abstraction

I'm more certain than ever that I want to do a large painting of white geese. I finally gave up on trying to think of things to paint on postcards, and went with a non-representational design.

I've never painted a true abstract. When I pondered it, starting a couple of years ago, I didn't know how I would come up with one. I've had a couple of ideas: one is to paint a discreet and unrecognizable part of an object, which wouldn't really be an abstract, but it could pass as one. The other thought was to expand on the doodles I do especially while I'm on the telephone (research shows doodling aids in concentration). This is along those lines.
