Colors of Autumn

Just want to share some Hokkaido Autumn-scenery with you.

While we enjoyed the scenery, we were able to pick some more murasaki shimeji (Lepista Nuda).

More Mushrooms...

Today, we went mushroompicking again.
We found the first Murazaki Shimeji (Lepista nuda) this year!!!
They are my fave mushrooms for chicken-soup.

And this is Noboryudake (Helvella Crispa). It may
look weird, but it tastes wonderful with clamps and Vongole Binaco.

We also found Akahatsu (Lactarius Akahatsu)
and some more Numerisugitakemodoki (Pholiota Aurivella).

Here is what I cooked with it for dinner...

Autumn at Onuma

Did not do much painting this week, because last week I was in Tokyo to get a new passport. I had a great time with all my friends there and I also went shopping and bought some new colors and books. When I came back I did a lot of cleaning and sorting out stuff and I can't wait to paint again.
Here are 2 old paintings. Both are in a private collections...

Here are some pictures of our mushroom-hunt.
We drove near Onuma and encountered masses of Amanita muscarina at frist. Those are poisenous, but beautiful.

Close to that spot we luckily found some Birch Boletus (Leccinum Scabrum) *yummy*

and going more deep into the forest, we got Suillus grevillei. Highly competitive in Hokkaido. It tastes wonderful with Miso-soup.

Last but not least, we got some Pholiota aurivella. Here people also eat it with soup, but in Germany nobody picks it. I ate it for the very first time today and it was delicious.

At the end, we went to a waterfall near Mori and it was a very beautiful scenery. I want to go there next Summer again and enjoy the cool air.
