The daily rains and damp weather cause the mushrooms to flourish in Florida. The moisture factor makes them sprout up, seemingly out of nowhere. A few weeks ago I began creating this pair of mushroom paintings. There are layers of paint, resist, and more paint. This process continues until completed. I think they are probably meadow mushrooms..anyone know for sure? well perhaps they are not finished enough for you to tell. I admire people who have learned about the vast varieties of mushrooms with the ability to know which poisonous varieties to avoid. Once while we were vacationing in the mountains a family hopped out of their car with cloth bags all excited about finding mushrooms. They were from another country in Europe where they were accustomed to harvesting them and were so delighted to have found the variety in the local woods.
