Pink Kisses: Love You (SOLD)

Here is another charming little painting conforming to the ACEO size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, which marks the second in my new "Chocolate Series" paintings. This was quite an enjoyable subject to paint; upon closer inspection I realized that these kisses were not only dressed in pink for Valentine's Day, but they also had love notes printed on their tabs. Another subject I just had to try, as I'd wondered if I could achieve the shine of the foil did I do? Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you, Kelley! Initially I wasn't even sure how to approach this subject due to the foil wrappers, but calmly told myself to just paint what's there!
