I’m not sure what’s wrong with me lately. I’m stuck in some sort of funk and it’s been hard to get out of it. For the past few months I was unable to draw or paint. My head is full of ideas, but putting those ideas on paper proved to be difficult. I’d start on a project but quickly lose interest, so now I have a folder full of half finished drawings and sketches.
I miss art though. I miss how much joy it used to give me. So yesterday I decided to try again and ease myself back into painting by going “back to basics”. Thus, I’ve painted a goldfish, which was one of the first things I ever painted (see the “old” goldfish here). The painting itself is very tiny, about the size of my hand (and I have very small hands), and painted with acrylics on a wooden floor panel. I can’t say it’s the best thing I ever painted, but it’s a start.
Amanita muscaria , commonly known as Fly agarics, is a very pretty mushroom- but also very poisonous.
This little guy is also for sale- $25. Contact me if interested (I do not answer rude messages or e-mails about my personal life, please be respectful).
My last mushroom painting seemed to be quite popular (if you haven’t seen it have a look here), so I’ve decided to do a little mushroom series. This one here is a Boletus edulis, otherwise known as the Penny Bun or Porcino.
The Penny Bun was painted on a wood floor sample (just like my last mushroom painting) and is for sale for $25. Please contact me (see the contact section of my blog) if interested or have any questions.
