The Elusive Golden Chanterelle II

80.00

Signed original acrylic painting on 6x6" (3/16" deep) wood panel.

Each year for about 2 months in the autumn I can walk into the woods and find these beautiful golden yellow sculptures emerging from the ground. Finding them is not an easy task. I will spend hours and hours searching the trails for a glimpse of yellow. More often than not I come home empty handed, but once in a while I catch a glimpse of these amazing fungi and my heart begins to race. Every mushroom hunter will understand where I am coming from, but others will probably laugh. Their elusive nature makes it all the more alluring to me, and the meal that follows a Chanterelle haul is very special indeed. Inspired by these annual hunts I have painted some of my favorite finds. This particular specimen was found at the end of a long day, hidden underneath a dense cover of Salal.
