Honeysuckle on Butterfly Peaflower

My giveaway of five Hahnemühle Cold Press Postcard Tins ends Sunday, June 6, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT. Have you entered yet?

#DoodlewashJune2021 prompt: Honeysuckle,

Did you know that honeysuckle is considered an invasive plant, but it also has many health benefits?

I had some paper that I’d stained with butterfly peaflower tea earlier. Since it also has many health benefits, I decided it would be a good background for a honeysuckle plant. Okay – I really did it because I wanted to save time by not painting a background. The other sounds more profound though, so that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

  1. Your art is so lovely I Love this!
    My honeysuckle just started blooming this week! The heavenly scent is filling my yard- oh the old fashioned roses are making their presence known too!

  2. You lead me on a trip down memory lane. I remembered my mom had a honeysuckle bubble bath that I got to use too. I never thought about what they looked like until your I saw your artwork today. I like the colors.

  3. The butterfly peaflower tea adds a delicious background to this beautiful flower. I’m going to have to get some to experiment with. I’ve always loved honeysuckle but mine looks different from this one.

  4. I still love honeysuckle…..even though it has no boundaries! Such a happy looking blossom and smells so sweet!
