Dracunculus vulgaris is a species of aroid in the genus Dracunculus and is known variously as theDragon Arum, the Black Arum, the Voodoo Lily, the Snake Lily, the Stink Lily, the Black Dragon, the Black LilyDragonwort, and Ragons. In Greece, part of its native range, the plant is calledDrakondia, the long spadix being viewed as a small dragon hiding in the spathe.[1]
It is endemic to the Balkans, extending as far as Greece, Crete, and the Aegean Islands, and also to the south-western parts of Anatolia.[1]

I absolutely love the look of this unusual flower.   I painted one years ago. I have painted this one in reds and with a palette knife. The painting is framed and signed by me.

This oil painting was part of a challenge. We used a limited palette, which is always challenging.  I used big brush strokes and bright color. My painting looks like it is at night with the moon shining but not showing. The colors are still there but I feel there is mystery surrounding the scene. I hope you like it and will comment.
