I have an insatiable sweet tooth, and custard is one of my favourite things, I could have it with sweet pies, crumbles, strudels, cake, etc or even just on its own. especially Ambrosia custard, you could almost drink it through a straw it is so good. Cold or hot I’m really not bothered just give me custard
Mint scented is my favourite, though I like lime too, it reminds me of Rowntree’s fruit pastilles and it really makes my mouth water. I have no idea what scent the blue one was only that I liked the colours so I pulled it out of the bathroom to paint it.

I love blackcurrants and for the past 14 years or so I have had blackcurrant bushes in my garden where ever I have lived. Even here in Fleetwood where we have a yard, I still have a small patch of earth that has a blackcurrant bush in it. All my blackcurrant bushes actually come from the bushes used to make Ribena, as years ago they did a give away, if you sent them labels off their bottles they would send cuttings. So I did and they did, and each time i moved I took cuttings off those plants and took them with me.
Even my grandad has blackcurrant bushes in his garden which were cuttings of my plants, especially when we moved house the last time from having a garden and not being able to produce the same volume as my grandad said they were the best tasting blackcurrants he had tasted we wanted to make sure he had some.

Blackcurrants are my favourite
I love the semi transparent nature of the jelly casting colour in the shadow
Painting still life is an accessible way to start learning how to paint, I tend towards packaging as it is something that comes and goes through the house, on swatches of different coloured fabrics to just add some interest to what the object is sat on.
There is a lot to consider on a packet from colours, to type and logos and so on. I’m not looking at painting with realism though, I just want it to be fast and fluid and describe a level of energy to my painting.
Nothing like a sweet treat
they are delicious
The box is bright and colourful
I want to get back to painting in acrylic too
