Scrbble Picnic: Finland



Reading about the forests of Finland
I felt like they were similar to my home in Montana

which inspired this piece:

    1. Thank you Alexandra. The gold in the mushroom is gold leaf and the texture is made from a a watercolor ground.

  5. What a beautiful and delicate madallion for your take on the them. I think it would be a great wall hanging or a lovely paper weight. Gorgeous work.

  6. You illustrate such a wonderful and magical and safe world which I can almost believe is real somewhere.
    The large mushroom is not threatening to the bare trees but is part of their world, they are intertwined in the most friendly of ways.

  8. Oh wow. I mean, WOW! The textures are wonderful and perfectly placed. I wish I could run my finger over the underside of that mushroom. Speaking of fingers, I just learned about the mushroom called Dead Man's Fingers. Yikes! I'd jump out of my skin if I saw those poking out of the ground.

    1. Thank you for enjoying this with enthusiasm.
      The undersides of these mushrooms are like sponges, they don't have gills. They are highly sought after, such a yummy treat when cooked!

      Your learning of the Dead Man's Fingers and your reaction make me giggle out loud. I certainly can picture then in your art! Thank you for sharing them with me. I don't think I have found them in the woods, yet they grow where the edible morel mushrooms do, so maybe next spring I will have the pleasure ;-)
