DARK KISSES # 2

                          16" x 20" Oil on stretched canvas

In February 2013, DARK KISSES was posted on the blog with the explanation  these kisses are my husband's favorite chocolate and thus, the painting was for him.  However, it did catch a collector's eye and found a new home leaving the wall space bare over the candy jar.

Solution - paint a similar piece.  This time the table edge is included and the empty wrapper is gone . Both of us like this one better.   The crystal and reflective foil  papers  still present a challenge but fun to paint!

DARK KISSES #2 has been juried into the Primavera Show at the Punta Gorda Visual Art Center where it is currently on display through April 30.

  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Toutes mes sincères félicitations pour la vente de votre oeuvre...
    Un défi que de peindre la même peinture !
    J'espère qu'elle attirera un grand nombre de visiteurs lors de son exposition.
    Un très joli travail du cristal avec une belle avalanche de couleurs.

    Gros bisous ❀

    1. Oh , Martine , tu es trop gentil ! Oui, il a été un défi de faire à nouveau le même tableau , mais était agréable. Je me suis ennuyé avant l'arrivée si !
      La peinture a fait attirer l'attention dans le spectacle , mais aucun prix et aucune vente ! Je suppose que ce la façon dont il va parfois . Merci beaucoup pour
      vos compliments et de soutien ! Bisous à vous aussi!

    1. Thank you, Nancy. Clear glass reflections are so interesting but always harder to capture than I assume they will be!! Thanks so much for your visit and comments!

  5. Oh Rosemary, this painting has everything. The technical perfection in capturing textures and reflections is breathtaking, but the piece is also warm and inviting-- somehow intimate in feel. Love it! The only problem is the irresistible pull I feel to the Kisses in the pantry--the painting is just a little too inspiring :>.
