BBY017 :: Lysimachia terrestris

Swamp candles.

This was just a fun art piece on an inspired evening. I tried to complete it all in one night, but had to finish some details the next day. Although I haven’t done any art since then, it was nice to pump out a piece all at once. I feel that the scene and style consistency also benefitted from the dense effort.

Swamp candles are native to the east coast and have been introduced to the west. These are part of the family Myrsinaceae/Myrsinoideae which was merged with Primulaceae.

Art by Nelson Spies, May 26, 2021. Acrylic on canvas. I sent the original to a friend in another province.

Specimen recorded July 24, 2020, 18:50 from the Pavilion dock.
