5 X 7"
Oil on canvas

If you've been following my musings/whining, you'll remember the wedding cake and the visit from our friend, the artist. Well these puppies were among the gifts he brought. He told me what they were, but I forgot. I wanted to do these on linen but none were dry enough to work on since I painted every surface black yesterday after my happy time with the leaves. Plus, I want to post a painting every day this week, so I had to rush this, but, I think it works.


  1. Hi Suzanne,
    You did a lovely job with these, your colors are beautiful! I think they're called Physalis, common name is Chinese Lanterns. There's a berry inside!

  2. Great use of color to make the little lanterns have their own glow.
