Birch Preparation

My new favorite canvas...birch bark.  Took sometime this past weekend to collect 
a few new pieces for painting.

To prepare them for paint I scrubbed them clean with a sponge and hot water.
They are not as fragile as they would seem and it's amazing how white they 
are once the dirt and green moss is removed.
