DIY Abstract Art

I’m occasionally inspired to paint something.  It usually comes from a need to have something on an empty wall!  We had a spot above our couch that I thought at one point I would hang a black and white photo.  That didn’t happen so I decided I would give a painting a shot.

Here’s the living room before:

We usually have some canvases laying around, we just reuse them over and over. No one around here considers themselves a painter but we like playing around with paints, even my son.
I started by painting the canvas white.

Here is the result:
