And again

I've only been back to the studio once since the last post, during which I mixed paints, poured pools of acrylic onto a plastic sheet and left them to dry, started a few things but didn't like them, and came to what I think is a conclusion on the piece that has featured in the last few posts:

Actually, now that I look at it, I realise that I still want to add one more thing to that black circle on the upper left: a grey shape, to clarify that area one last time. 

And I also now see echoes of the work of Yves Tanguy, a Surrealist painter, whose work I never used to like. And yet some of those dots and lines seem to have crept in. The trouble is I never know if I'm doing anything that has meaning, or whether I'm just adding stuff to fill in the space and to keep myself from being bored. Which is better: to try and make everything have an explicable meaning, or just to push blindly forward and hope for the best? Or something else?
