This little study is 8" tall by 6" wide, done on cradled board and ready to be tucked into a special place. I think it is very much a "feeling" piece as opposed to a "compositionally-correct" piece.That is, this confusion of color and shapes and distraction is exactly the way
the floor of the forest "feels" to me when I hike and, of course,
search for fungi specimen. It's beautiful and abstract and then, wow, there's a
mushroom, and then there is another, and
another and another.
Suddenly there is a composition, suddenly it all falls together and begins
to have a very nice shape and flow to it. Just takes a bit of study
