Congratulations to Kathryn Chorney

Kathryn Chorney’s illustration ‘Bracket Fungus (Ganoderma) on Stump’ was awarded Second Prize by the Puget Sound Mycological Society at their 48th Annual Juried Wild Mushroom Show, in Seattle last week. The prize includes a year’s membership in the Society.
This was a nice end to a story of being in the right place at the right time – when the call for exhibitors came out via the GNSI listserv, I had just completed the illustration, based on a specimen found on my sister & brother-in-law’s property in Wellington County. I painted the image in watercolour/ink mixed media on paper, in summer 2011. The composition was completed by referring to a collection of other bracket fungi as well as self-collected references of wild plants and tree textures.
Image size approx 15″x11″.
