Why Paint Abstractly Too?

There are many artists who are strictly realistic painters and others who are strictly abstract painters.  Throughout my painting career, I have been predominantly in one camp or the other, but not both at the same time.  Lately, I have found myself following both paths.  I relish the freedom and looseness of abstract expressionism AND the challenge of depicting scenes I find interesting.  So I am doing both.
My work benefits from this unorthodox method of development.  The abstract pieces have better composition and harmony because of my realistic work.  My realistic work has more spontaneity and boldness as a result of my abstract work.   Go figure.
