Celebrate the season with chocolate! That's what I often say. And why not when the chocolate comes in delicate shiny little foil wrappers? I think it is important to test the chocolate to make sure it is tasty. Sure, this still life painting could have worked as two pristinely wrapped mint chocolates, but I wanted to make sure that what was inside was as good as I assumed-and I was in the mood for celebrating. In case you're wondering, it was excellent chocolate.

The shyster's game of shells is turned on its side in this painting titled Shell Game. Graduated sizes of shells are placed vertically, one on top of the other with each shell containing a different number of steel ball bearings. The harsh, steely color of the balls arranged inside the soft, iridescent pearl hues of the shells make this painting captivating on many levels.
Unsuspecting people fall for the shell game over and over, and you will be drawn into this painting again and again seeing something different each time, but without the consequences.
Welcome! I'm so glad you are here and I hope you find some of the information I have shared helpful.
