For the last few days I've been making another painting for my class. It's all about one of my favorite addictions, dark chocolate. It was strange, while painting these they became just objects with light, shadow, tones, colors, etc. They completely lost their magic as chocolate, and all week none of them even had a surreptitious bite taken! I wouldn't have thought it possible.....but painting and drawing put me into such an altered state that even chocolate loses its sway for awhile.
