30 DAY REACH 280

As someone who plays the guitar often, the guitar tends to find its way into my art from time to time. Alas, while I was brainstorming new scenarios to act as the basis of new paintings, I thought it would be funny if a couple of the aliens saw one of the humans playing the guitar and wanted to know how to play it themselves. I liked the idea because, while most of the other paintings in the series show the humans learning and growing in the alien world, this idea was one instance where that gets flipped around and the humans have the chance to offer something of their own to the aliens.

Whenever you are in a new environment, particularly when you're young, it can be easy to feel like you don't know anything and don't have anything to offer. This idea recalls the moment when you realize that you do have something to give to the world, even if just small.
