I call it Beautiful Star because it was inspired by the music from the stage production Beautiful Star: An Appalachian Nativity. If you ever have a chance to see that show at Christmas time GO! My daughter was cast in the performance of this at Water Tower Theater that year and OH I LOVED the music! I think I listened to the practice CD more than she did.
I wanted the star to look amazing, like nothing those shepherds would have ever seen before. I used a palate knife and very thick paint.
