Gettin' crazy with the paints

During my late teens I did alot of large, high-energy abstract paintings that explored texture. The one that I did the fastest (in about 15 minutes) was a 4 foot square canvas with house paint, newspaper, oil paints and lost of thinner running down the face of the canvas. Today, I returned to this approach and put the paint on thicker than ever. Using left over house paint I poured it down the surface of the canvas covered in wadded newspaper. This feels like a good start, but I think it needs something else...
