A few more weeks of work and I have finished Dreams #2, the second of the large scale can paintings. Damn they are challenging! In smaller paintings there is the ability for much more gestural and abstraction, but on a larger scale all that needs to be refined much more. Particularly of issue on this painting was the fine print near the recycle logo. I chose to move towards abstraction rather than pushing in the direction of photo-realism. It is very important to me that these remain paintings, not a slavish photographic representation.
