The colors and shapes of this Stokes Aster I found on the side of the Dollhouse met both my colorful and interesting criteria. As I framed the composition for my White Flames piece, I felt that the inner shapes, with their sharp tips and orientation, resembled flames. It reminds me of the magic campfire colors I’ve seen, albeit burning in purple, blue, and white. While concentrated in the bottom center, they are shooting out in all directions which gives it a sense of being active. The high level of captured detail allows individual hairs, pollen, dew, water drops, and surface texture to be seen.
My Dollhouse Stokes Aster piece is the vertical companion to White Flames. The high level of detail allows pollen, surface texture, and dew to be seen here as well.
