MUSHROOMS #WorldWatercolorGroup

– MUSHROOMS –

Today following November watercolor prompt list is “MUSHROOMS”  I am joining whenever I can  doodlewash for  November Adventure!
I was very happy to paint this one,  because I love mushrooms not just to look at their colors and beautiful shapes, there are so many kinds I love to look at some wonderful botanical illustrations. Mushrooms are a very beautiful subject for  nature inspired watercolor paintings. My painting has the colors of the Fall Season. I directly painted with the watercolors without previously tracing with pencil, I just painted the shapes straight on the paper. I combined the mushrooms with leaves and acorns. I loved the after washes ink drawing, like in a second layer I created the leaves and the acorns.

Editable mushrooms also are filled with lots of nutrients and are a great source of vitamins and minerals very good for our health in a daily diet. I eat them a lot and mostly raw in a variety of salads and also I love to eat the big Portobello Mushrooms. I used to cook them in many delicious ways, but right now that I follow a raw vegetarian-vegan diet,  the big Portobello ones are amazing raw topped with some avocados, chopped tomatoes, hummus and more there are lots of tasty options for a wonderful Mushroom sandwich! ❤

 watercolors are outlined with black, brown and white ink pens. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  Ink pens used  Pigma Micron Black ink #05 and Brown ink #01, white Uni-ball Signo gel pen and a black ink  Pentel Prera fountain pen fine nib .

People have been telling me for a while that I should write a blog….  Okay – a few people….  Maybe just a couple….   Oh well – I want to try a blog and one or two people might have encouraged me….  So here I go.  I have a very full and blessed life.  First and foremost, I am a wife to a wonderful (most of the time) man I met when I was 16 years old, married when I was 19, and still tell I love every day 32 33 years later (you do the math – yep – I’m 51 52 years old!  Where did the time go?!)  Truly – it is he who puts up with me!  I am mom to two of the most amazing young men in the entire world and mother-in-law to the sweetest young lady any mom could wish for her son to find.  My full-time job is director of corporate communications for a hospice and home health agency (shameless plug for http://www.celtichealthcare.com :)), where my husband tells me I get paid to talk for a living.  Of course I do a few more things… but I am truly blessed to work for an amazing company.  (Please also note:  the views expressed on this blog are my own and are in no way related to Celtic Healthcare.)

Poetry – Crystals

 

Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz

 

Crystals

translucent surface
of an inner energy

powerful light
radiating rays of depth
in the history of nature

sun reflection and donation
of universal love
for the humanity to hold

a cosmic revelation
sometimes unknown
like puzzle pieces to find
within our soul

awareness will come
with perception and feelings
love is power
light will shine.

Thank You!
Thank You!

MARIA JANSSON PHOTOGRAPHY

“I am passionate about; exploring the back roads, being fit, healthy food, hiking, camping, horses, wide open spaces, road trips, the joy of hearing my daughters laugh, and ending each day in peace.
My grandmother gave me my first camera when I was five years old, and I’ve been taking photos ever since.

See you soon!”

I connected recently with Maria I came across her Blogs because my passion for photography.

This is an excerpt of her About Page…

My grandmother gave me my first camera when I was 5 years old. The photos on this blog represent the beauty I experience, in my not so ordinary life! It would be my greatest joy if they could serve as a source of inspiration for you!

Horses have been my passion even longer than photography, and for a while I had an Equine Photography business. I decided to travel some side roads in life, and to temporary let go of full time photography. I grew up in a small mountain village in Sweden, and I have traveled extensively in Europe, and the US. I believe in the law of attraction, in kindness, and a humble attitude to life. I have a BA in Natural Science, and Early Childhood Education. I’m genuinely interested in a sustainable lifestyle. While not working full time as a photographer I’ve been learning valuable skills connected to my goal of having a homestead on a few acres. Lately my fingers have been starting to itch to make photography a full-time business again. Right now I am learning more about the business side of photography, and collecting all the equipment I need to start out in the best possible way, when I’m ready”... (Continue reading here)
