Organic magic

"Organic Magic," 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper
"Organic" was the #WorldWatercolorMonth prompt today, and multiple thoughts came to mind, all of which seemed impossible, or not desirable...from compost heaps to delicate greenery in hanging plants.
Then I thought of mushrooms, toadstools, organic live arising from organic death.  And that's sort of bland, until you decide to have fun, remembering imaginations of enchanted fairies dwelling in and around enchanted mushrooms. 
Organic magic sprouting new imagination, with some fairy dust sprinkled in.
So here you have today's watercolor, "Organic Magic," and from Shakespeare, Titania, queen of the fairies.
