This painting is done from a photo taken last fall at the Concord Chelmsford cranberry bog. Aquatic life at the edge of the bog is vibrant and colorful. The purple flower in this painting is a Blue Pickerel weed.
This broad-leafed water plant thrives at the edges of a shallow water of marshes, swamps, bogs, ponds, and protected areas of rivers where the water is slow-moving. The plant produces an abundance of lavender-blue flower spikes through the summer. Blue pickerel is a vigorous grower that sends its glossy leaves as much as 3 feet above the waterline.
