Mushroom Gnome


with all his heart
he believed:

I am 
invisible

he took delight 
in being
 part of the hidden realm

one never knows what they might spy
under a wee fungi

  4. He is great, holding his mushroom over his head. Does he lower it at night, then he would be really invisible. Like the effect on the pink sky Enjoy your little ditties.

  5. What a strong personality you have painted here.
    We've got some mushrooms in the front garden today, I must have a look underneath when it is light.

    1. yes, i agree, a strong face on this wee lad. I seem to create more details in faces than the rest of the details, maybe that creates that feeling. Let me know what you find under the mushrooms.

  6. Hee Hee Too cute, Tammie. Love how the little guy is blended in as the stem of the mushroom. Darling. How did you do the background effect? Was that salt with your watercolor? It's perfect.
