But chocolates for breakfast is another matter.

Pile of French candy boxes..EMPTY! Give cause for idle chatter - yum..yum..yum
*A special note for those concerned for my well being and think I'm capable of eating everything I shoot. The contents of these French chocolate boxes were left in a bag outside the door of the concierge as well as several other lucky recipients (the photography shop on rue Vavin and M.s' door). I can barely look a bonbon in the face these days...well almost.


  1. Idle chatter is yummy...I agree!
    I'm going outside now to look for les bonbons by my door...

    This blog is beastly!
    Gorgeous sweets I can not have, and wonderful paintings I can not do. Beastly ... ;)

  8. thanks for commenting on myblog. you offered to send me your chocolate box contens so that i could paint them.
    it would be torture if i had to paint them. i would never finish a drawing as i would always end up eating them.

  9. You'd be surprised sklein how quickly a surfeit of bonbons can pall...

    Lovely still life- I enjoy the dreamy, airy quality of your paintings, and of course, the subject matter is charming.
    I've never heard of chocolate twigs- but it shouldn't suprise me!
    Such amazing things culinary artists can do with food :) Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!


Love hearing from you
