Licorice – November 19, 2009

“Ruin and recovering are both from within.”

5″ x 7″ Golden Fluid Acrylic on Gessoed Aquabord

It was fun to just play with the colorful shapes of this candy. I did it for the Different Strokes challenge on WetCanvas. This is the first time I have done the monthly challenge from the acrylics forum. I’m starting to really enjoy acrylics! I just can’t wait to see what flows from my brush next! ~big grin~

About Epictetus

Epictetus, the Roman-era Stoic philosopher, lived a very ascetic life, believing that happiness came from living “according to the will of nature” and that free will comes from how we respond to circumstances. He was born in 55 AD in what is now Turkey and spent most of his life in Rome. He spent his youth as a slave and became crippled due to his master’s harsh treatment. He was later exiled to Greece, where he founded a school and wrote his most famed work, The Discourses. He died in 135.

    I really like this one and the memories it brings back, seeing that in candy jars around the house when I was little…. I like licorice, but I have to say, I hate this stuff! Ha….very cool pic Beth…

    Neat composition, Beth! I liked it even without knowing it was licorice. Shapes and color all tumbled together.
