50$ of this sale will be donated to The Seed Savers exchange.

 

Sunflower /Helianthus annus, a plant in the Aster family, has long been cultivated for food (entire seeds ground or sprouted), oil (pressed out of seeds) and dye (petals and pollen).  Scientists have traced the origins of the sunflower being adapted to agriculture to at least 3,000 BC in present-day Mexico.  A few varieties of heirloom seeds are still in human circulation, and need to be grown out regularly if we wish to preserve the genetic diversity of this invaluable and culturally important plant.  

 

Original painting from the Ephemera calendar series (2016-2018).  Black walnut ink and pen on paper.  Approx 9.5 " x 12.5".

 

For a limited time!!!  WHOLESALE FRAME OPTION:

If you would like to upgrade your purchase to the framed piece, for a limited time I'll be offering a flat 80$ framing fee.  This is a wholesale framing price; I will use my local framer's chop shop for artists to frame the work for you before shipping.  After adding this painting to your cart, find the "80$ Frame" item in my shop, and add to your cart.  

 

If you do not elect the 80$ frame option, piece will ship flat, unframed, between board.
