Inner-Space-7-Painting

oil on canvas print painting by John Foster Dyess

The questions are:? What is an abstract painting? What is a realistic painting?
This image started out as combination of photographs I took of several objects and scans of textures I created that I combined in layers using Photoshop. I began to see various forms in my Photoshop creation and began to enhance these forms using a Photoshop brush. After I had completed my digital image I had it printed on canvas ,and using oil paint  I glazed over the print. I have created shapes and forms like I would if I were painting an object or landscape. The difference is this landscape exist in my brain.
This is from a series of paintings I call Inner space.
