Ribbon Candy



I have to say although I miss my boys and husband, I sure have enjoyed the peace and quiet, and have been busy painting up a storm, well not a storm but here and there. :) I started this one last night, and am not sure I'll be able to pull it off, I used what I thought was just a brush but it had yellow ink in it so I might not be able to rid that area.. But just thought I'd post, I love this candy it's so traditional and brings back many fond memories for me when I was a kid, my mothers candy dishes were allways filled with ribbon candy on the holidays.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

And a little further:

I like the reflections in the glass. I have 2 boxes of ribbon candy from last Christmas that I'd meant to paint as well. Maybe I'll crack it open this week.
