My Favorite Fungus

A few weeks ago we had several days of rain (which seems to be a recurring theme around, since this past spring). After it cleared up, I looked out the front window and saw something strange. Upon inspection I found this really interesting "garden" of mushrooms of various kinds and colors. I just had to take (a lot) of photos.
This one formed a cup on top that collected water.
I think this is the same type of mushroom as the others above, but in a different stage of development.These were a beautiful bright yellow color, but we looked them up and found out that they are extremely poisonous.This group looks like the Mushroom Family- Papa, Mama, and Baby Mushroom, don't you think? And below, they are pictured a few days later.

I thought they were so beautiful and interesting, they inspired me to do a few quick sketches.


  1. Very nice paintings. You are so gifted. Mushrooms are fascinating. They change so quickly.

  2. Wonderful sketches! What a talented lady you are!! Well done. You captured their likeness so well!!

  3. Very clean and fresh sketches. You are so very talented. I am so happy your baby is home. It's amazing to me how close we become to our pets. They are such a large part of our lives daily.

  4. Hi. I just found your blog from the Country Register of Maine. I was checking out your patterns. I love your mushroom pics.
