After working on this anemone for awhile, I realized it looked like something from the sea.
Only later did I remember there is indeed a creature called a "sea anemone."
All textures by me--the wavy lines and cracked area are from a photo I took of an old metal pail.

Exif: F Number: 22, ExposureTime: 769/10000 seconds, ISO: 250, FocalLength: 60.00 mm, Model: NIKON D70s
