Roots - Phase 2

I used frisket on the branches so that I could do a wash of indigo watercolor for the background while leaving the branches white for now. This was a little time consuming! So far, so good. I had to clean out some rock from around the house tonight and plant a few more hostas so I didn't have as much time to work on her as I had hoped. I'll try get more done tomorrow. Stay tuned :)

Oh........I made the BEST chicken kabobs tonight! They were absolutely fantastic! Candy on a stick! You can find the recipe here Give it a try :) YUM!

Off to bed......I'm beat!
