Here is a piece in a more expressionist vein:
The Gray, 2009, crayon & acrylic on card, 11" x 8.5".
I suppose this came about due to my reading an article by Whitley Strieber (writer of "Communion" -- which I haven't read, etc.) online today. I'm interested in the questions a) do aliens exist? and b) if so, do they have emotions?
I suspect the answer to both questions is "yes" (billions of stars, millions of planets, thousands of civilizations I would guess), but as I've never seen nor met an alien, I don't really know. Just conjecture.
