Pink Oyster Mushrooms

Pink Oyster Mushrooms

>

Sometimes something literally stops you in your tracks, makes you back up, and look again.  In autumn, I was visiting the Belfast (Maine) Farmers' Market.  On my way back to the car I passed a stall with **pink**, truly PINK, oyster mushrooms of the most amazing color.  I backed up, asked the young woman if I could take photos, and did.  I've included one of my original photos below.  Apparently they lose some of the color when cooked, but they really are this color.  

I dyed the fabric pink, then used textile paints to add more color, shadows, and the tawny brown caps.  

Materials:  artisty-dyed cotton, textile paints and inks, mock-trapunto, polyester thread, wool blend batting. 

Size 30 x 50 inches. 

$ 3,200.00
