Beets- they're nature's candy don'cha know? And apparently nature's watercolors. xD Great job using an unusual medium!

Such a pretty shade of violet. It's actually the color of the crown chakra.

Story: Many years ago there was a pair of women living as man and wife.. long before it was called gay or homosexual.. probably back in the Ozarks or something like that in the 1800's? .. The one woman was an artist and she painted everything with natural dyes like this..
