This detail of the bottom of a ketubah shows the clarity of my wildflower painting and highlights the use of a tiny papercut (probably an inch and a half in diameter) to provide additional visual interest.  The intricate star shape is cut out of the full sheet of paper that forms the document, and it’s backed with a deep blue painted paper.  The star is further enhanced with colored pencil shading that create and in and out weaving look.  This type of container for greens or plants is one that is a universal image related to a tree of life, found in religious art throughout the world.
