Like many, I can't resist collecting a few of these beauties. And here I present one such specimen - delicately mottled in grey and silver brown. Very subtle. How to lure you in for a closer look though. By saturating the background in a gradation of green, yellow, and orange. Symbolic of the progression from Spring to Autumn, from forest to sunshine.

Beeswax or rather encaustic wax (which is beeswax simmered with damar resin for better wear) is my go-to for showcasing natural elements. It seems appropriate, giving depth and texture that are further highlighted with random flecks of color.
I hope that this for you occasions a thoughtful mood, a slowing down to savor one of Nature's many seasonal gifts.
