Chocolate Drizzled Delights

“Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Chocolate Drizzled Delights

5″ x 7″ Watercolor

I enjoyed painting these yummy treats, even though I’m not a big donut eater.  They taste good, but an hour later I’ll feel bad.     Not unlike some passions, I guess.  🙂

About Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson helped spark the transcendentalist movement with the essay Nature, which described his belief in the spiritual essence of humanity and the natural world. He was born in Boston in 1803. He was a Unitarian minister until he resigned in 1832 to become a philosopher and writer. He suffered the untimely deaths of many of his loved ones: three brothers, his first wife at age 20, and his eldest son at age five. Emerson died in 1882.

    Wow! I love sweets, but doughnuts would be low on my list. But these, well, these are HIGH on the list! Wonderful, fun, fabulous watercolor treats for the eyes!

    This is so cool paired with a quote on passion! I also feel yucky after devouring a donut. The chocolate drizzle on these is beautifully rendered. Oh the detail in placing the highlights. Love it, Beth!
