Mushrooms for St. Valentine's Day

This is what living on the coast for a few years has done to me....
I don't plan to eat any of the mushrooms, but after every rain shower they pop up everywhere and they are so varied and fantastic looking that they have invaded my imagination.  Couple the daily mushroom surprises with discovering the fun of the "paint" program on my computer and this is what happens.
Happy St.Valentine's Day. February 14th

a post script added 15 February
  I have fielded quite a few email questions about the microsoft paint program after posting this painting.
This is a picture I drew on a blank screen, no photograph was used.  It is a representation of many common elements in the environment where I live, but not any particular spot or certain tree.  Please remember not to use any of my work or images without my express permission. Thank you.

I love it! I recognize that tree... I love my mountain picture too! And I love you!

That is delightful! You mean you can take a photo and "paint" it up? Or did you do that freeform?

This is all painted, on a blank. You can transport photos into paint and add things, but in this case, it is all freehand, or free mouse, you use the mouse.
