" Past Curfew " Completed Paint Party Friday Week 10

"The Woods are Lovely Dark and Deep"...... and I'm afraid a Little Too Spooky for Me!

Last week Ronda from Roban asked if I would take a few pics of the Artist Conk next time I would be out and about in the wood collecting some specimens for my art. Well, Since it's been raining forever and ever now the idea of taking a hike on the trails of the local forests seems to be a far away dream. Not only was there the initial fear of confronting bears and fishers but now another few obstacles have popped up; the trails I usually frequent suddenly have morphed into tiny canals reminding me of my Venetian family roots, only not as pleasant for the visual beauty and serenity of the walk for undoubtedly they will be mischievously tempered with by none other then the nasty annoying pests themselves, the little vampire beasts .....yes....mosquitos.
And as I write this post, just outside my door, they are hovering over the sides and top of the frame looking for  any tiny opening they can squeeze through, waiting to take their first juicy bite of the season!  So, I have opted to wait for a while before I venture into the Wild Wood for the time being and force myself to work on a regular canvas for the following week's PPF. So this Artist Conk painting is it for the time being. I kind of like it . I will miss the wood burning. I have come accustomed to enjoying the mushroomy smell of the conk.
