Sea Anemone

I’ve gone aquatic with my natural patterns alphabet:


“Sea Anemone,” 5 x 5 inches, pen and ink, prints available in my shop

Seeing how this series plays out is as interesting and surprising to me as it might be to you. Take for example this drawing, and compare it to the last one I did, Queen Anne’s Lace. I notice an uncanny resemblance, even though one is an earth-bound plant and the other is a predatory animal from under the sea. Nature is amazing! Flowers everywhere.

If you’ve never seen a sea anemone for real, search for it in google images and you will be astounded by the drama and variety of them. While I am happy with my drawing, black and white can’t do justice to the psychedelic, supernatural qualities of this animal—punchy purples and ethereal greens—any color in the rainbow really, and then a flowing fringe of tentacles. Nature is the best artist!
