While in Anna Maria, I often visit The Olive Oil Outpost for a scrumptious cafe con leche. It's my routine to stop once a day - yes, I'm addicted and like the people there a lot.
On the way to the OOO, beside the walkway between streets, was this strange plant that had red pods growing on a tall red stem (it stood about 4 feet high). It also had a single white flower blooming, which I did not paint.
It caught my eye and I had to try to paint it when I came home.
Some impressionistic greenery around it and another stem without the pods.
Wonder what this plant is called? I was going to ask someone, but forgot to do so while I was there.
This is painted on a scrap of 140# Fabriano Artistico cold press paper.
