Catto is drawn to transitions. This small blue and red flower watercolor painting celebrates the moment immediately before a plant blossoms and moves into another formation. This little bud is on the precipice, the Threshold, of change. Blooming is coming, and spring is nearly here. The plant featured here is a staple in Colorado’s high alpine environment: the lupine.
The abstracted nature of this macro watercolor provides a loss of detail that captures the moments before change.
