One artist/professor I know, in his day, said remarkable things. One being, "Your paintings are too much like illustrations (in a bad way)." Even though his paintings are a lot like illustrations and he was trained that way. Another thing I overheard him say, and this is a good one, and I took it to heart.
"Your paintings. Like a cave. But the same cave over and over." I see his point on this one. I really do and I'm fearful for my latest paint hens.
One "out" in the whole sitch...what if the cave is really nice and deserves re-visitation? What if?
