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

This maiden seems mesmerized with her cup.  Is it half empty?  Is it half full?  What is supposed to be in this cup?  I like every painting to be a bit of a mystery.  I start tight, building my framework, then work my way to loose and confident.  The grand finale consists of dashes and swatches of color with my buttery, softest pastels.
