Green Anemones


Green Anemones in the Rocks of Monterey Bay
(Anthopleura xanthogrammica)
Triptych - Oil on Three Canvases - 49" wide x 21" high

This painting is based on a color slide from my first UW camera - a Nikonis 4. I took it years ago in Monterey Bay. In recent years I was worried that global warming was causing this species to disappear or something. But then I realized that their favorite place to live is on the rocks of tide pools and in deep channels on exposed rocky shores. I just don't scuba dive in those kind of spots very often. ;-)

The original painting image is also available as a Giclee on Paper, Canvas or Metal - small to very large.
