Lupines, Lilies and Licorice

I recently purchased this large painting surface from Dick Blick called, “Ampersand Aquabord.”

If you aren’t familiar with this surface it is made for watercolors, acrylics and mixed media.  It has an absorbent surface and slightly textured that is archival and acid-free.

I purchased the 1-1/2 cradled panel so that I can hang it directly on my wall without paying for additional framing.  It is rather large but I’m wanting to let go and paint!

Onto my subject matter…

Flowers!!

These Lupines are growing in my yard.  I took several photos to learn more about their leaves and plant structure.  Aren’t their colors luscious?

My Lilies are not in bloom yet… accept ONE bloom!!  This flower seemed to be saying, “Ha! I want to be part of the picture!”

And last but certainly not least, one needs a little energy snack while they create… my favorite candy is this red licorice!

I am creating this painting for my bedroom that recently got a “make-over” with new paint, carpet and furniture for my 35th wedding anniversary that I posted about here:  Hello May!

What is your favorite flower and snack?!  Please share!

Happy Creating! 🙂
