Fungus - Elizabeth Smith
In my yard I found this interesting-looking mushroom; it looked just like a piece of pastry with a nibbly edge. I sat on the ground and did a quick sketch of it with my travel set of watercolors and aquabrushes.
I know very little about wild mushrooms beyond bracket fungi and morels, so I have no idea what kind this might be. In the amazing manner of synchronicity that runs through life like a silver thread, I had just watched a fascinating documentary on the Sundance Channel about fungi!
