Waiting to leave

 

I have used a detail from an old picture I found and pasted it onto one of my abstract works that I made a couple of weeks ago. I really like the combination of figuration and (pure) abstraction. I had a conversation on this subject yesterday, the conversation was about what I preferred; figuration or abstraction. The answer is not simple, I like both, but ... making abstractions makes me feel calm, while making a figurative work feels more like a battle. So, when I need to pick a winner, it would be the combination of these two ;).
