“Interesting work, how did you think of that?” This piece started with the cover graphic which I find beautiful. The caption below the mushroom reads, “The play of light on the velvety coats of this species attracts the artist who delights in texture rendering.” I had previously played with dried mushrooms I had scavenged from the gravel parking pad at my parent’s cabin in northern Wisconsin. However upon identifying the mushrooms I learned they were deadly and thought it best not have them anywhere near humans. All these mushrooms are found in northern habitats. So I pulled an appropriate geography and found the wood housing interior with antlers and the bone chair made by an excellent craftsperson in my Antlers file. Originally, I hung the little, empty picture frame inside and envisioned someone taking this home and adding their own image to the frame. I revisited that last idea and put another antlered animal in the frame. Now, with a head in the frame I needed some legs for the chair. I started with a pair of green cloth legs with black shoes (a leftover from a Colonial Williamsburg souvenir). Janice’s critique was to try bones. Good call.
