Hershey's Kiss

A Single Kiss | 6"x6" | oil on hardboard

Recently, a friend and fellow artist, Darren Maurer, did a couple of paintings featuring Hershey kisses. With Valentines Day coming up this weekend and the fact that I seem to be in candy mode lately, I thought I'd paint a kiss as well. Capturing the reflective wrinkly wrapper was enjoyable.

Kisses have been around for over 100 years (since 1907) and Hersheys makes over 80 million of them every day. That's a lotta chocolate.

I also wanted to share with you an article that appeared in last weeks edition of The Weekender magazine. It featured a story about my blog and artwork. You can click here for a link to the story.

Happy Valentines Day.

Interested in buying A Single Kiss
