What did this have to do with the Odyssey II project?

Hi... I read the first Ch7 prompt about Tal'shen having a sense of purpose eg.
"Go."Somewhere, Lysanna clawed at the shards of mirror, using the last of her strength to send the message. The words came to Tal'shen as needling pain, piercing her mind. "Forget them," her mother said. "Go now and do as I've created you to do!"
Tal'shen felt her mother die. It did not matter. There was no feeling of attachment; only the drive to carry out her purpose. ....
and later it mentions rain falling ...my painting expresses the sense of purpose for random groups of forms too and I imagined Tal'shen hiding somewhere amongst them, especially because my figures have a tentacle like appearance in their relationship with the surrounding space.
Hope this clarifies why I put my artwork forward....L
