If you can do something this good from a photo, I'd love to see you painting fungi from life! So, I hope you get some rain soon too. (Just so long as it doesn't fall here as well!)

Wow; great job -- another very realistic one; love the grass too but oh the way you've gotten those tops is fantastic.
Rain here today - predicted!
Hugs,

I grew up with a mom who loved to draw red mushrooms with white polka dots, but I like your monochroic ones too --- they look elegant (I would never thought to say this about fungi).I love your mushrooms painting. :)
