A little mini-painting I did at a friends house the other night. I was looking at a lot of Eyvind Earle’s “Sleeping Beauty” background paintings earlier that day and thought I’d do a little homage to them. That man could paint.
Edit: This is also up for sale in my store if anyone is interested.
Physalis alkekengi, or the Chinese/Japanese Lantern, blooms during Winter and dries during Spring. Once it is dried, the bright red fruit is seen. The outer cover is a thin mesh that held the flower petals, seen in golden brown colour.
