This watercolor by Jean Cate shows that same castor flower as portrayed in Castor Flower I but a few days later. The colors are deeper and more saturated. The larger leaf of the castor has fallen and only one remains, small and slightly star shaped, clutching persistently to the branch. The blossoms around it continue unchanged, if not redder in these last days of autumn. A simply elegant representation of change and cycles of release.
Dimensions: 27" x 20"
Framed in reddish brown wood with UV protective glass.
