“Two Amanitas”— the season for these is almost here. I look forward to seeing them popping up everywhere.

My painting “Big-Leaf Maple with Mushrooms” won silver medal at the opening of the show “Out of the Woods” at the New York Botanical Garden last night!

Wolf lichen— Letharia columbiana. This was in the mountains in Montana. One of my favorite Lichens!

One time when I went on a hike to search for mushrooms to paint, I only found really little ones. I made this six-panel painting of tiny mushrooms. One of these, Marasmius quercophyllus, grows on dead oak leaves— the stalks are like little hairs.

New painting: Oak Galls and Lichens. This is a small one, I’m starting a large painting with Oak Galls.

“Lichens of the Pygmy Forest”. At Salt Point State Park there’s an area where the soil is shallow— a layer of hard pan limits the growth of trees. So cypress, pine and redwood trees stay small even when they’re full grown. There is a wonderful diversity of lichens here.

Another painted egg. The design for this one is from a Chinese porcelain cup.

“Oak Twig with Lichens”. This was one of my earliest lichen paintings, still one of my favorites.
