Abstract Art with belt sander

Already a drawing a day is pushing me to expand my techniques and style.   The simple process of putting pastel on black and white photos is working well-- but I had to start painting abstractly or I was going to go crazy.   So here we have layers of metallic paint--  I each layer down before adding another one to provide the textured background.    I actually made the background for this blog using that technique. 
                                                                              I'm still thinking about adding layers to the second picture shown here.   Let me know what you think.
