Chocolates anyone?

Cordially Yours, Color Pencil by Dianna Soisson
It's that time of year for the Christmas baking and in my family we always made homemade chocolates and chocolate covered cherries are no exception. Two years ago I attempted drawing one of my chocolate covered cherries. In this case the cherry tasted better than the drawing looked and no I didn't have it sit around the whole time I was drawing it. Huh! (I did use a photo.)
I have learned a lot since then. Don't krinkle up foil too much for a photo shoot and don't use a complicated chocolate mold. I have learned that my painting can be turned on it's side and even upside down and take on new perspectives! I have learned to laugh out loud and at myself when others look at this particular painting!:)
Yes, I will try again another chocolate painting someday and this time I guarantee there will be only one way to hang it. Hee! Hee!
