Old Age and Dried Sunflower

This drawing was about my Mother and her aging process. She had always been independent but then when she lost her sight it took the life right out of her. The image is not my Mom but an old photo I found. The sunflower was one of mine. You can imagine my surprise when it won an National Award. I then hung it in a show in Ogunquit, Maine and it sold, I was heartbroken as I never expected it to sell. A short story about this drawing.
