This is part of a series of paintings called "Dream Land." Places that only exist in my mind. Places I want the viewer to go. Paint is applied in layers and then wiped and scraped to create a purely abstract piece.

Patrick O'Boyle primarily paints in a studio, rarely using reference material other than his own thoughts and dreams. He always paints in a series of five - at the end of the fifth painting he revisits and reworks all of them until he feels they're complete. Using extra-long handles on his brushes, Patrick paints at a distance from the canvas so he can see the works evolve as a whole from the one color he starts with to the vibrant array at the end.
