Sea Anemones: Jewel, Snakelocks and Bubble

For the next few weeks I am going to show my paintings of Sea Anemones that were prepared for a magazine article I wrote for a South Carolina magazine called The Breeze. It has been suspended due to the Covid pandemic. I will tell you about these interesting animals under each painting. Perhaps one day if the magazine resumes, you can read the entire article.

Sea Anemones look like lovely flowers but are actually voracious, carnivorous animals that are found in oceans at different depths. They wave rubbery tentacles to attract prey. Some species have only 6 tentacles and some have more than 1,000. Each tentacle has a stinging cell that injects a poison into the prey which paralyzes it. The anemone then moves the prey into its mouth which is at the center of the beautiful flower-like structure.
