An Original Oil Painting by
Claire Beadon Carnell

Thanks so much to Pat Koscienski for hosting this month's DPP Challenge.  
You still have three days to submit any entry!

'I'll Have a Side Order of Fungus, Please''
Oil on Canvas
8 x 6

You never know where your inspiration will come from...
I was in the very long, and very slow line of cars at
the Wendy's Drive-In window in Carlisle waiting to
get some of their GF chili for lunch.  As I was getting closer to 
my goal, I saw something in the crotch of the tree that grows
right by the curve that gets you closer to where you
can place your order.  I had to do a double-take,  were those
some small alien ships hovering in the shelter of that tree?  No, it
was three delightful fungi that had attached themselves 
to the tree and were flourishing - must be the Wendy's chili!

I painted this for the DPP Challenge Blog, hosted this month by 
Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Artist Pat Koscienski.

October's Challenge will be hosted by Sue Marrazzo

Great post Claire. I wish I was with you when you took the photo. Deb Kreiger and I found some mushrooms on the way back from delivering the DPP Hanover exhibit. I may post about it.
