Creating an abstract painting

I seldom paint abstractly, which is a shame because I do like abstracts and I love painting in a purely intuitive way which lends itself to creating abstracts.  Anyway, here is a recent abstract painting.  Acrylic on illustration board. I started out with a few blobs of acrylic paint and a vague idea that I was going to paint mineral accretions based on a photo I took in New Zealand.  The painting went in a different way eventually.  See what your imagination makes of it!

 This is the initial scraping of acrylic paint with a few additions of color glazes.
