Daily painting for January 30, 2015. 5×7, Oil on gessoed plywood

Mushrooms are some of my favorite things. I used to collect wind mushrooms in the forests of Ukraine and Russia when I was a kid. I still remember a lot of the edible varieties and will pick some when I’m out hiking. But these guys came from local market. It’s winter, so no mushrooming for a while.
