Nuts About Candy Corn

Silver Corn "Silver Corn" -- Watermedia on paper

"Silver Corn"

This is a new piece I finished in July titled "Silver Corn".  It is fluid acrylic and transparent watercolor on Arches 140 lb paper measuring approximately 10 x 20".  Inspiration came to me when cleaning my mother's sliver nut spoons in preparation for Thanksgiving several years ago.  I happened to have some candy corn ... well, truth be told, there is always candy corn in my house in the fall.  I thought the color and texture would be a great contrast to the silver along with the reflective value of the candy corn.  Hmmm, I think I'm hungry now....
