for solving the mystery!
And as http://josepha-amarantine.tumblr.com/ said, the message is
a toxic messenger: this one comes with a story and a question
An “intuitive” friend recently told me to be on the lookout for a message to come to me through an encounter with an animal. He just had an encounter with a coyote and received some kind of personally valuable information. Okay. Instead, the message came to me through the arrival of this alien, toxic-looking plant in the breezeway behind my home. I am the only person who observed it growing, blooming and then dying all in a matter of about a week.
At first, a large green, spotted pod emerged from the ground. It was about the size of a toy football. I don’t know why I didn’t photograph it but I decided to just watch it happen. Almost like I didn’t believe in its existence. In a couple days, the pod opened into this plant. I have no idea what it is and nobody I know in Florida seems to recognize it either. I think it must be some kind of mushroom, perhaps brought here by a bird. I should add that the “leaf”(?) at the base was about 14”-16” in diameter.
As soon as it bloomed, it immediately began to die.
Anybody out there recognize this plant?
What’s the message?
Okay, its about 10 more days of living in Florida … So I will post some shots from here until I go and then it’s no looking back!

You are very welcome, Janine! Thank you again for your support of my work!
I am preparing to move across the country in a couple weeks, from Florida to Seattle. For the time being, I am entrusting my entire body of paintings to Christian Zvonik & Max Caston of U562 Studios & Gallery.
If you are in or visiting St. Petersburg FL and have interest in viewing or purchasing…
My work in painting is getting interrupted temporarily, but I don’t expect to slow down with my photography. That’s the beauty of this thing. Travels.
