Saw the call for an interpretation of a mushroom through torontooutdoorart. How could I not share a photo of these guys 🍄🍄 🍄? 😉

I’ve been working on some new drawings and this is one of my favourites! I’m so excited to play around with it and see what new pieces I can come up with. Experimenting, exploring and play is such an important and part of my practice and it also fill me with so much joy! Is there anything you’re doing lately to bring joy to your day? ...

For the past several months, I've been led into the forest by something whispering my name ~ a voice on the wind calling "this way". I go deeper into the forest, finding something hidden on the back of a dead log, or growing just beneath my feet.
.
The Mushroom Whisperer guides us into the forest and through the woods, reminding us that the invisible web under the soil doesn't just allow the mushrooms to thrive, but enables communication with all living things in the forest. And some days I hear it too.
.
The Mushroom Whisperer Ancestor Doll will be available on the New Moon this month. Please sign up to my newsletter to be among the first to hear when she becomes available (link in bio).
.
On her body are embroidered mushrooms, and around her neck is a dried piece of mossy maze polypore collected by me in August.

“Direct sensuous reality, in all its more-than-human mystery, remains the sole solid touchstones for an experiential world now inundated with electronically-generated vistas and engineered pleasures; only in regular contact with the tangible ground and sky can we learn how to orient and to navigate in the multiple dimensions that now claim us.” ~ David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous
.
Now that physical contact with others is out, many of us are remembering a deep love of nature, extending our need for intimacy back to our original Mother.
.
In the city, my son is often tentative in terms of his physical being-ness, always a bit on the cautious side. As an introverted-extrovert who loves working from home, mama to a total extrovert, his need for social interaction is much greater than mine and he desperately misses his friends and being with others. But when we’re outside, alone on the trails, his confidence has exploded, an so has mine.
.
There is a gorgeous hidden language, silenced under the din of city life, longing to be heard, and in this time of physical distancing, we are reuniting to our first true love.
.

Have you made a mushroom for the @torontomycelialnetwork yet? This project, spearheaded by our friends at @eastendartsto, invites you to join the network by making a mushroom of any material, size, shape or dimension and sharing a photo on social media with the hashtag #InvisibleNetworkTO. ⁣⁣Why a mushroom? Mushrooms can be a great distance apart but are connected to the same invisible network. So, like a mushroom, let’s connect while we remain physically apart! Each week for 12 weeks, East End Arts is giving away a new $25 prize to one lucky mushroom creator! Check out @torontomycelialnetwork for all the info! Together with our LASO family (@eastendartsto, @lakeshorearts, @scarborougharts, @northyorkarts, and @urbanartsto), let's build this Invisible Network across our city.⁣⁣⁣ Check out this beautiful Neoboletus Luridiformis changing colours as it oxidizes for some art-spiration. Happy mushroom making!
