Noni Plant from Belize

WatercolorWorkshop is having an open January project. Y can paint any medicinal plant. I chose this noni plant we saw when Jerry and I took an anniversary trip to Belize in 2006. You may have heard or read about noni, which is supposed to cure cancer. It sells for ridiculous amounts of money for little bottles of the stuff. I've seen it in Hawaii and in northern Florida being sold. Apparently, the ants like the sap that comes off the bulbs very much but I don't know how healthy ants are...hmmm...

Here's the photo Jerry took - a strange looking thing.

I'm working on the painting slowly and will leave the background white a la botanical painting style and should have it finished tomorrow.
