If you love Appalachian wildlife, I can’t think of a better way to display it than on a Phellinus rimosus, fungus! The fungus grows like a shelf on Black Locust trees, and when broken off can make a beautiful upright surface to paint images on. It is as if it was made for this very purpose. Even the back of the fungus is a beautiful, natural, bark-like surface. From what I have seen, they most commonly grow about 5-7 inches by 7-9 inches, although they can grow much larger. I have been commissioned a couple times to paint pictures on these, and it’s been a pleasure every time. Since this artwork cannot be easily reproduced, each original is especially valuable. I’m hoping to be able to paint on some of these to put up for sale here on our website some time. We’ll see.
