When I was growing up in England, my dad would often challenge my sister and me to find things...look for a pine marten, he'd say, and we'd peer for hours out the back windows of the car. Look for owls, he'd say, and we'd stay awake looking at all the fence posts as we motored along country roads as the light disappeared. Look for fly agarics, he'd say. Well, dad, I found one here in Powell River, just about 250 metres from my back door. The Amanita muscaria has to be one of the most splendid mushrooms, also known as a fly agaric.So, I painted it - just a small oil painting - and wouldn't you sold within five minutes of me putting the paintbrush down! Now it's with its new family, and I'm looking forward to seeing its family members this fall.
