Fine art illustration of a Common Sunstar (Crossaster papposus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Common Sunstar was completed on 1.28.2014. Some years ago my wife and I traveled with friends to the Sonoma coast. We happened to arrive on a beach at a very low, seasonal tide. The ocean was as far as I think I’d ever seen it. In the tide pools were a number of animals I had never seen before, the Common Sunstar being one of them. I snapped a few photos, thinking one day I might like to draw one. Well, it took some time but I finally got it done today. It will be part of a collage of starfish I’m putting together.
