"Portobello Mushrooms"

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

This is the first time with this subject. As for mushrooms, I think you either love 'em or hate 'em...I love them. I also love how this painting turned out. The textures and lighting are exactly what I was going for. ALSO, I forgot to mention on my last post that there was a small article about me and my Daily Paintings. You can click here to view it. My wife actually wrote and submitted it without me knowing so it was a pleasant surprise seeing it printed. It is great having support like that. She is the best (and she's not standing right behind me telling me what to type).

Michael, you have captured that strangely unique mushroom texture! I love the softness and earthiness of this. Beautiful!

I agree, this is lovely. The background color was a great choice for these mushrooms.
Congrats on the press, and kudos to your wife for being so supportive!

Wow! They look delicious!!

I would love a set of various paintings like this one, and other things like red / green / yellow peppers to put up in my kitchen. It's stunning.

I wish I could paint like that!
