The ABCs of Candy


In an effort to make more "me" time, I've been spending a little time each weekend working on paintings-- of candy! I just finished one of caramel bullseyes, and I'm now working on one of those little pastel colored licorice squares. It's so much fun and it's a subject I (obviously) never get tired of. When I don't have a large-ish chunk of time (like when Henri is napping), I've been making these art trading cards (ATCs) as sketches for the paintings. I want to do a whole series of "ABC" cards in a candy theme. Of course, some letters are easier than others. Any suggestions for U or X?
