Peanut Butter Cups, Butterfinger, & Butterscotch

Well, just yum, yum, and yum! Right?!

Yes, of course I ate the missing half of the Reese's.  And, I not only ate the bite from the Butterfinger, I had to do it twice because the first bite wasn't pretty enough for the painting. A very enjoyable part of the painting process, I'd say.
No, I didn't finish either the Reese's or the Butterfinger.  I like those just fine, but I don't love them. Ron was happy to enjoy the left overs though. If, however, I'd been doing a painting of a Baby Ruth and a Zero there would have been no sharing!
Now, about those butterscotch hard candies.  Apparently butterscotch isn't popular any more. There weren't any to be found in either the Walmart Supercenter or the grocery store.  I found some in a bag of party candy mix at the Dollar General.  I intend to enjoy sucking on every single one of those myself.

My art challenge for the week was "Butter___"  I thought I'd paint a butterfly on a buttercup... until I realized what a tiny yellow not-much-of-anything flower that a buttercup was. I thought I'd paint a butternut squash, but it's the wrong season to find them. I would not have wanted to take a bite out of my still life props if I'd used a butternut squash anyway.

  1. I choked on one of those butterscotch candies when I was a kid, so I haven't had one of those in years! What a fun take on the butter challenge!

    1. Oh no! Well, you could enjoy a munch of one of the other two!
