Gourds and more mushrooms.

A little while ago we bought two gorgeous gourds in our coop store. I painted both of them, and probably will paint more.
Here is the first one - painted on 8x10: inches canvas panel and finished with UV protection varnish.

Gourd #2  - 6x8 inches canvas panel, also varnished:

And a new painting of three King Bolitas mushrooms - painted on 300lb watercolor paper mounted on 10x10 inches stretched canvas, varnished:

Little Purple Mushrooms.

4x4 in

As you probably already noticed I love painting mushrooms. In fact I love everything about them - hunting (what a strange word, like they are running), eating (of course edible ones). Mushrooms similar to what I painted are not edible, in mycology's world they are usually in a undefined category LBM - little brown mushrooms.  Well, I decided to paint LPM - Little Purple Mushrooms. Enjoy!
