Are they edible?


oil on board 5"x7"
"The gendarmes of Die (Drôme) intercepted around thirty persons yesterday evening, suspected of participating in a traffic of mushrooms towards Spain; more than 600 kg illegally picked were seized: indeed,  the authorized picking must not exceed 5kg a day per person and for personal  consumption only".
Obviously sarcastic comments burst out, arguing that the gendarmes would be better to chase after  hallucinogenic mushroom criminals..
Not having a great knowledge of  mushrooms, I prefer  buying  them at the market, it is safer!

  2. Bonjour Sylviane. Merci de ta visite sur mon blog.
    Je vois que tu participes à plusieurs défis de peinture! Bravo. J'adore aussi ces exercices où on se dépasse avec des sujets parfois moins confortables.
    J'aime beaucoup tes sketches aussi.
    Quand aux champignons, je sais seulement que les plus beaux ne sont pas toujours les meilleurs. Comme toi, je me fie à la cueillette de l'épicier. Bonne journée!

  3. HI, Sylviane. Mother changed her name to add some sophistication to her life! She felt the double name, Mary Joyce, was not as regal as she. We all enjoy my mother so much. At 85 years old, we never know what she will devise.

  9. Sylviane, the stems on your mushrooms are positively luminous! I also love the movement caused by the curve of the stems - a wonderful painting altogether!!!
