Alita, thanks! Yup, same here, I start to have a strong expectation on the pics with (my) kids, which is why I will work hard in the nearer future not to fulfill them. My usual workflow feels stuck because I had found one that works and flows, with little option for real differences. Expect more aliens soon
Thank you Greg. It makes me very happy that the same depth of story sparks even when I departure from my usual ways. It reassures me that there might be hidden more behind that hill. It was completely abstract (non-representational) at first, and I found some interesting effects when splashing the canvas with pure alcohol, I will need a lot more practice to get a grip on this, though. Sometimes I wish I had found the inner strength to keep it non-representational, though.
