Mushroom Art for Sale by Artist C Ribet

While the ancient coastal redwood forests of California provide a great abundance of mushrooms as subject for wild mushroom photos and fungi for mushroom art photography and art prints, not all of the mushroom photos and mushroom prints at the gallery art site (see http://gallerycalifornia.com) are of mushrooms growing in those forests. Fungi are abundant in many other places as well. For example, the main Gallery California art gallery site has mushroom photos of fungi and mushrooms from the North Woods of Wisconsin, and it shows mushroom art prints and wild mushroom photos of mushrooms and fungi from many other places in California. The wild mushroom photographs you see displayed in this mushroom picture slide show are mostly from California, however.

If conditions are right, the fungus will continue to grow over many many seasons. This fact that the mushroom is just the fruiting body, and not the long-lived organism itself, is why if you are out mushroom picking, and you are very careful to remove only the mushroom and not disturb the underlying fungus body (the mycelium) you should be able to return again to the same spot for more mushroom picking the next season. On the other hand, if in your mushroom picking you carelessly uproot the mushrooms by ripping and pulling out the mycelium, you will likely damage the fungus itself, and you may kill it and never find it in that spot again.

Consider for yourself a reasonably distant visual perspective of a wild mushroom. Now imagine removing a troop of 'identical' mushrooms from their surroundings, suspend them from their mycological environment, keep this distant perspective, and visually inspect them in your mind. …

The fungi kingdom, or mushroom kingdom, makes up its own kingdom because fungi are not animals, and fungi are not plants. Fungi and mushrooms do not photosynthesize and instead derive their energy from the decaying organic matter which supports them. This means they are not dependent upon the sun like most plants. This doesn't mean that all wild mushrooms grow in dark caves, however. For many fungi and wild mushrooms of the fungi kingdom the sun and the warmth it provides are essential to their life cycle. Additionally, many of the fungi kingdom live as parasites to living hosts which require sunlight to grow, and others live in a relationship with sun-loving hosts which is mutually beneficial to each (these fungi are called mycorrhizal fungi). …

Not many of the original pictures of mushrooms I take will make it all the way to become a mushroom watercolor giclee print. There are so many variables involved in just capturing a fine art mushroom photograph that it is always at least very hard and frequently quite impossible to get everything perfect in the field. Sometimes it seems impossible even to capture a body of reasonable pictures of fungi to begin with, and that is just the first step to obtain the original pictures of the mushrooms from which to ultimately make the final mushroom watercolor giclee prints. …
