Chinese Lanterns

5 x 7"
oil on canvas on panel

This plant, Physalis alkekengi, aka Chinese Lantern or Japanese Lantern is actually a real plant (as opposed to the bouquets of mini plastic pumpkins on sticks I've seen around lately), which I wouldn't have believed if I hadn't looked it up on the internet with my own two eyes. Very interesting, and fall-like.
