Annapolis. Eclipse. Giant Mushrooms. No Painting Today.

So, the first thing I did was drive out to Annapolis to deliver 6 paintings and pick up 4 small ones. That took most of the morning and early afternoon. The eclipse was starting to get underway when I got back, so I spent some time wandering around the yard taking pictures of the crescent shapes of the sun on the ground, as it was filtered by the tree leaves.

Crescent shapes on pumpkin plant leaves. Note pumpkin growing in shadows.

82% coverage of sun.

Also: we had a giant mushroom growing on the lawn. I'm adding this photo because Nature is just so amazing. Apparently, this is a "puffball" mushroom; I think it looks like the brain of an alien entity. The deer have been ignoring it.

Puffball Mushroom. Approximately 9" in diameter.

Tomorrow: back to painting.
