This is another painting that my wife and I saw at a local art exhibit. I apologize for the poor shot. The painting is called Fungi and it was done y a certain Jo Tilbury. I could not find any Like for Squeaky Wiper, this painting had a strong effect on me. This is a more autumnal picture, so you may find it out of time, but these days it does not feel like summer is on its way. And autumn is my favourite season, so it is nice to look at something reminiscent of it from time to time. I find that autumn is a subject of choice in art exhibits in general, whatever the time of year.
So anyway, I loved this painting. There is something vaguely eerie about it, otherworldly even. Mushrooms are associated in folklore with the supernatural and witchcraft. One could picture gnomes hiding in them, some faery creature walking through them, or (of course) witches picking them up for some potions or poison. I know, I have a wild imagination. Still, I wish I had a wall to put this picture on. It would be a good excuse as any to buy it.
