Welcome to The Gilded Farmer's Blogspot!

Farming and Framing go well together, right? Same letters just a different arrangement. I use eggs from my hens for my egg tempera paintings, the feathers from my turkeys for some fine painted finishes, and the fruits and vegetables as a source of nourishment and inspiration (sometimes using them for still life paintings.

in the woods

There's nothing more relaxing for me than to be in this stand of trees above the family camp. Each time I visit the forest changes. Once we came through after an extended period of rain to see the forest floor covered with so many varieties of mushrooms, our intended afternoon stroll turned into an extended adventure in mushroom photographing and identification. They were beautiful. This image was taken with a Holga camera my sister rigged up to be a pinhole camera. I took this image with about a 2 minute exposure time.
