Years ago I painted the interior one of my large papier mache bowls with a scene of a woman pouring water out of her vessel, the water turned into waves that curve around the the bowl. I loved the way the image worked so well with the bowl shape. I still have the bowl which sits in our living room. I felt like trying to do a painting with a similar idea. The Star is the result.
A young woman is pouring water into a pond in the evening with the stars shining above. To me the painting symbolizes that each human being is unique like stars in the sky and that through our own uniqueness that we pour out into the world we help to create a better world. It’s good to see people coming together and focusing on how they can contribute in their own way during this turbulent time period.

Thank you Melissa!
I love your words and painting here. Inspiring. Thank you, Heni.
Beautiful! And I like the vision behind it also. The woman in the painting looks like the young Martha Argerich one of the few living legendary piano goddesses and muses …
Thank you so much! I will google Martha Argerich, she sounds interesting!
