I am somewhat of a neat-freak, and I LOVE a nice, clean, organized grid. Apparently, the best way to make a grid supremely interesting and eye-catching, is to make it out of chocolate. Go figure, chocolate is always the answer.
It was weeks before Valentines Day, and I fell in love with the idea of taking something SO predictable and familiar (and dare I say, tacky) and turning it into something AWESOME, simply by changing the scale. There was just something so whimsical about it – a simple, classic, GIANT box of chocolates in someone’s home. I had to make it happen.
I ran to the store and bought a variety of chocolates to experiment with. I literally placed them on a white canvas so that I could see a tiny mockup of my vision. My kids were incredibly impressed with this entire project.
On a personal level, you should know that I am a chocoholic. It is the first and last thing I eat every single day, for better or for worse (but for better, right?) – so this painting is basically my spirit animal. Art + chocolate + grid. Does it get any better?
We ship unframed work internationally. All prints are made to order, one by one. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for your order to be completed before shipping. Due to the high volume of sales this Holiday Season, any order placed as of Black Friday will be shipped in January. That being said, we are optimistic that early orders will be sent out in time for Christmas!
Since all of the artwork is prepared by hand, one by one, buyers generally don't mind waiting for a piece that has been carefully and specifically made for them. Especially these days, looking forward to something like that can be super exciting!
