Showcasing a dilemma

These seven images below are some illustrations I did some time ago and which I love. I remember doing them all almost in one sitting one after the other. One reason why I wanted to post them is that they have elements which might be uncharacteristic of some of my other work (?), but more highlight the fact that I do not have a style. This at times has caused me confusion - for example when deciding what 'kind' of work I should show on my website - but more and more I come to see and believe that my work (whatever one creates) is not really mine; it belongs to a moment and if one tries to impose a style on the moment, then the moment cannot possibly express itself -can it?
