9×12 original pastel on sanded La Carte paper, framed, $225, plus shipping

This one is shy.  I was shy.  I still am.  It is not easy opening up.  You can look at my work, which is a reflection of me.  Just don’t look at me.  And please don’t stare at me.  I chose to paint this sunflower because it is closed.  It protects itself.  It is a bit mysterious.
