About This Painting

If ever there was a time that a painting took discipline to complete...

As I finished each piece of chocolate in my painting, I had to resist finishing it in real life. With some degree of pride I can tell you that all the chocolates are still in the box. They all survived the tempting ordeal.

What is it with gals and chocolate? A box of chocolates as a gift can really go south on a guy. It's a risky one. You're basically giving her a gift that she can enjoy in secret and feel very guilty about the more she enjoys it.

Well, here's an alternative... an original oil painting of chocolates!

It has distinct advantages:

  • It will last longer... likely for generations.
  • It's not fattening (in fact, it's not edible).
  • It will not melt, even over the fireplace.
  • You can enjoy it with all your friends, openly.
  • You can have it well in advance of Valentine's Day.
    Nothing last minute about it
The perfect heartful of chocolates!

Incidentally, chocolate is good for you! Dark chocolate, anyway - loaded with antioxidants. So just eat 'em already!

Great painting!
Also, I admire your ability to resist temptation: I would've had to eat just a few!
