The Abstract Dreams collection represents Guadalupe's first true venture into original painting. The heyday of the collection was in 1999, when production was at its peak, although Guadalupe had already begun to experiment with his ideas as far back as 1997, with Seven Doors, which was followed by April Summer in 1998.

After his move to England in early 1999, Guadalupe was able to concentrate on developing his ideas even further, and in the first part of the year produced 3 large abstract paintings, The Handshake, Echo of Peace and Moonlight, which were submitted for exhibition at the Bath and West Show. The Show accepted The Handshake, which became Guadalupe's first painting offered for sale to the general public.

From April to June 1999, Guadalupe travelled around NW Spain and Portugal, and, in Madrid, came into contact for the first time with the works of whom he now acknowedges as his favourite painters, Pablo Picasso and Wassily Kandinsky. Influenced particularly by Picasso's interpretation of everyday objects in his own personal style, Guadalupe began to design his own ideas. Just a handful of these designs became paintings, such as Hippy, African Woman, Eternity and Geometry Set. Five paintings offered for sale in his local gallery included his original paintings Africa, Sound and Volume. Of these, Volume became his first painting ever sold to a member of the general public.

After his move to Newcastle-upon-Tyne in September 1999, Guadalupe continued working with the Madrid designs, producing works such as Turtle and Elephant.

After moving to London a year later, Guadalupe began to incorporate other influences in his work and to lay the foundations for some of his other collections. Therefore, the last work that can be included with this collection is Dreams of the Sun, painted in late 2000.
