Local Giant Fungi

I have been busy with family for the last few days so have had little time for artwork. But on my travels around yesterday came across this wonderful colony of huge fungi. They were up to 6-8 inches in height! I am not up on the types of fungi and their names – so any contributions are welcome!

It has rained on the north coast of NSW for the past 20 days! We had floods of varying levels in most the local rivers on the far and mid north coasts after Christmas but we are still having constant drizzle, showers and humidity.

We’re all feeling a bit damp…

So I went back today to find the fungi in a local farm’s front garden – I quickly managed to get these photos in between rain. I hope I can find some more over the next few days if I can find the time. Been thinking of a lino print design using fungi for a while now – yes another project…
