Broken Resolution

16x12″ watercolor on paper

The most common New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. This painting shows what happens when such a resolution and healthy intentions meet chocolate, the ultimate temptation. The recipes cut out of health magazines are covered by candy wrappers. I wanted a trompe l’oeil effect, so I left the magazine pages a little looser than the candy wrappers and used different colors and lighting on them.
