 Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I went out to the backyard and lay on the grass.  I stared up at the stars.  Sometimes I see satellites in the night sky, and it makes me wonder what else is floating around out there.

SIZE:  11″x 14″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

Yesterday in San Clemente, CA, it was 80 degrees and beautiful.  The ocean was a warm 70 degrees and the waves were glassy.

Overnight, that changed.  Today was chilly, the wind was swirling and dark clouds have crept in.  Amazing how the weather changes, it has always fascinated me to see mother nature come to life. A storm is coming.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to Robin A of Eugene, OR.  It’s her first ever original painting.  I’m glad to have been the start of her art collection!

MUSHROOM 7 of 50 Paintings in 50 Days by Drew Brophy Nov 1 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This painting is #7 of 50 in the #50Paintings series:

Titled MUSHROOMS– 8″x 10″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

Mushrooms have always fascinated me.  How they pop up out of the grass in the early morning as a little group of friends.  But what’s more amazing is what we can’t see, under the ground; a huge collective of fungi, all connected as one, under the earth.

 

But what’s more interesting about this paint study is what happened after it was bought.

Tyler Watkins, a long-time friend and collector of my art, saw the first preview picture, while it was still just a rough sketch with little color on it.  He bought it, not knowing how it would end up looking.  After seeing a picture of it nearly finished, he sent this text:

 

Tyler's childhood mushroom and frog!

Tyler’s childhood mushroom and frog!

I didn’t know about the frog in the painting.  I love it.  I grew up with a bedroom set that I still use in my home that had a mushroom and frog on it.  It’s always been my favorite.  

Drew wouldn’t have known this but it’s so cool that the painting is turning out to nearly match the dresser set.  It was meant to be…talk about faith in the process, wow!

 

That’s so cool.  And it makes me so happy when friends are stoked on this series.  Thanks Tyler.  Hope you love it.
