Bunchberry

Bunchberry.ScoutIsland

Cornus canadensis, acrylic on board.

A detail-shot from one of the paintings I did for Scout Island Nature Centre. This one showcases one of the more common forest flowers found in the area (British Columbia Interior), the Bunchberry. The large white “petals” are actually bracts (modified leaves). The Bunchberry shown here has lost its flowers, but at its centre you can see the developing berries.

The panel has holes for ventilation of the tank equipment.
