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

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.
