Turkey Tail Fungus (Trametes versicolor)
Just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday I am starting a new project of turkey tail fungus. My plan is for a diptych, that could be a triptych when added to my "Rhubarb" painting. My inspiration comes from some turkey tail fungus I photographed in a friend's garden growing from a tree stump. I am intrigued by the patterns of the growth. I plan to do both paintings 8" wide and 16" tall. I have played around with my photographs and after much cropping and rotating, have two compositions I like. I will be changing the colors to make them a bit more exciting using a complimentary color pattern of blue and orange.
