Greek goddess of the starry sky, Asterea, looked down upon the Earth. When she was unable to see any stars it broke her heart and she began to cry. Shedding tear drops covering the ground as rain would fall. From that day forward, where ever a tear drop had landed the "Aster" flower would grow and enchant all for eternity.

Curator’s Comment:


Less is definitely more in this painting titled Aster.  The spidery violet petals languorously curl out, enticing the viewer into its bright yellow center.  The complementary hues set up an interesting formal contrast, as the stem then dramatically pulls towards the bottom of the picture plane. I appreciate the restraint in leaving the background space open.  The Early Bird likewise sets up a visual dynamic between complementary pairing of red and green hues, but here the background becomes a strong, unexpected presence. While the diminutive bird is rather central to the composition, the active marks in the fields of primary color dominate the piece.  I find it interesting that your narrative caption suggests a grueling winter month, as I would have envisioned a cooler color palette in response. But in many ways the clash of the red inhibits any peaceful repose a light blue might have offered.
