indian pipe (aka: weird little study) - 10x8"

 Not like my usual posts but for some reason I felt like showing this.........I have been watching this little plant in my backyard for several days. At first I thought it was some type of fungus or mushroom but I went on the internet and found out that it is a chlorophyll- less plant called "Indian Pipe." For some reason I just had to paint its weird little portrait..........the plant pushes up through the leaf litter and pine needles on the ground forcing the ground up in this mound shape. Pretty interesting to study.
