The Elusive Golden Chanterelle III

150.00

Signed original acrylic painting on 12x12" (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'm 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.
