Happy Valentine's Day! (Sold)



SOLD

This little box of Godiva chocolates is going into a basket of goodies for my sweetheart of 30 years.  The box was wrapped with the prettiest red ribbon tied into a beautiful rose.  How could I resist painting it?  I hope I have better luck resisting the temptation of this holiday's delicious treats.  

Also, this is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge.  Click here to see all of the wonderful entries.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sold! - it's mine now :D. I can't wait to hang it up in my home. I think a nice gold leaf frame will look wonderful. I'm so happy to own one of your pieces Darla.
