Chinese lantern at De Orchideeën Hoeve

This painting will always remind me of my wonderful trip to The Orchideeën Hoeve (www.orchideeenhoeve.com), a tropical garden center in Luttelgeest, Holland, in July 2011. It was there where I took my reference photos of Chinese lantern plants (Physalis alkekengi) I used for this painting. This painting is in watercolor and the size is 27x35 cm or about 10.6x13.8 inches.
