Mushrooming and Collage




HI, Yesterday on my bike ride I was riding down a wooded road nearby and found all kinds of wild mushrooms. It made me think of my friend Ivana, she knows how to mushroom.. her mother taught her which mushrooms to cook and which were poisonous. Of course my purpose was to paint them. I found pink, red, dark rich browns, sienna,lavenders,grey,-- so many colors of mushrooms and I wasn't even looking for them. So I took them home and set them up on the art table and started a collage using masa paper and 2 kinds of rice paper I had on hand. I bought the book Myrna recommended by Brommer. Thank you for the inspiration Myrna!~~ Check out her blog. Creativity Journey. Anyway here is my new little mushroom painting and here are a few new mushrooms which popped up in my front yard this morning.. ummm lemon yellow mushrooms.. they would make a great painting too!! Take care, Hope to see you at the show Saturday.. look at the last post for more info on the show.. Talk soon, Diana

  1. Wonderful painting with great effects. I have used Masa paper but never rice paper and I have not tried collage. I'll have to check it out.
    Good Luck at the show this weekend. I'm going to be at Stockley Gardens Art Show. I sure hope the weather is good.
