Title: “The Elephant’s Foot”
#3 in the Plant Series
Medium: Pencil, Digital Painting, 2011

This one is dedicated to my husband whose favorite plant as of late has been the “Elephant’s Foot.” It’s a gorgeous caudiciform plant with an awesome tortoise shell shaped root. I don’t believe they grow to the size as I have depicted here, but the largest I’ve ever seen is about 3′ round.

Here’s a link to a great website with more information and photos about this plant.
