Watercolor on unusual surfaces

My sister Dee knows my really well.  My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and when I flew up to visit my family, she gifted me with a course we could take together.  It was called, "watercolor on unusual surfaces."  We took blocks of wood and smeared them with a sandy acrylic compound, and another with  thick, gooey, modeling paste.  When they were dried, we painted on them with basic watercolors and wonderful chinese bamboo brushes.  What a wonderful time to spend both with my sister, and doing something I love.  Neither of us have much experience in watercolor, but it was fun to try something new, and we both decided to try our hand at trees for this particular piece.
