Art is Like a Box of Chocolates

Last year I bought some gorgeous chocolates that featured artwork by area artists. I contacted the Chocolate Artisan, Jason Andelman, to inquire whether I would be able to have him make some of these for me to give as gifts this Christmas. He told me that set up costs would be too expensive; although no price was actually given. So, I decided that this just wasn't a project he wanted to take on.

In the spring I saw that the group that produced the chocolates was seeking new artists for this year's box. I submitted a design and now I have my design on chocolates!

Here it is:

Here is the design I submitted; it is entitled Arlington Bridges and features three of the bridges that cross from Arlington into DC:

New "Gallery!"

I have now set up a gallery of my work in the sidebar. Have fun browsing and feel free to send comments or questions. (Be aware that I don't post the comments, positive or negative, but like reading them.)

My etching Prince of Peace was chosen to be displayed in the Ellipse Gallery's All Arlington Salon opening this month, October 2006. You can see it under the intaglio prints section at right.

My monotype On Perch was accepted into the Art League October member show over at the Torpedo Factory. (UPDATE: On Perch sold.) It was the third show since June into which I had a piece accepted, so I will be able to sell work there beginning next June.
