The problem is I LOVE CHOCOLATE. A lot. I love chocolate a lot. Probably too much. Ok, definitely too much, lol. This is why I thought it would be fun to draw up all those little interesting shaped chocolates. You know, there's the round shaped truffle and the square caramel and the spiral cherry cordials. And then there's the ones in the gold wrap that are some kind of coconut or nut-type and the ones with the different swirls on top, those are usually different kind of cremes. Oh yummm, all those different kinds of chocolates. The stuff of dreams.
So, I tortured myself for a couple of hours drawing then painting these little babies up today. I even heard from Vonny who complained that I was a hideous friend to make her torture herself with all these chocolate pictures, she's painting up chocolate too, lol. At least I'm not alone in all the yearning and drooling.
Now, see if I had been smart like my friend Tracey who usually paints the actual item instead of just pictures of the item then I would have had a bunch of chocolate in the house. The goal then would have been to get the painting done before I ate my still life. At least I wouldn't have been tempted to lick the screen, instead I would have had a box of actual chocolates to devour after my arduous painting session was done. Yup. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Did I mention that I'm stupid??
