STUDY IN BLUE tones.
These colors create an intensive mood.
I used modeling paste to create the impasto look.
I live close to Kennett Square (PA), the Mushroom Capital of the World. a small town, which is located about thirty miles south of Philadelphia. Over the past one hundred years, mushroom growing in our area has evolved from a minor sideline among area carnation growers to a multi-million dollar industry.
Today mushrooms are the number one cash crop in the state of Pennsylvania. The states output accounts for nearly half of the nation's total production
They sell White Baby Bella, Shiitake Oysters, Maitae and Portabella Mushrooms in the area I live.
I used gold leaf to warm up the cold
The gold is also representing the mushroom's value in our area. Lots of people work in this business. _________________________________
