I was commissioned to paint a painting for the opening of a new women and children's domestic violence center in downtown Albuquerque. Very short notice but a very worthy cause so I said yes. This is the painting, it has just received a nice coat of varnish and is drying. There is a tall sunflower in the middle flanked by five other sunflowers standing guard. I feel like the upstanding sunflower might be a woman coming into the shelter and the guardian sunflowers are the support that she's going to find there to help her move on with her life.
