This is so sweet! Good chocolate can have magical qualities, just like this piece seems to say. The lady is lovely; her face looks very friendly and those clothes are wonderful. It's brilliant, just brilliant.

I love the portrayal of a real woman, not some idealized fantasy, this is really something unique!

I never gave much thought to chocolate, personally it is better than anything I can think of for PMS! ;) I am currently trying to lose weight, and luckily for me, I love dark chocolate. For the record, small amounts of 60% to 80% cocao content chocolate has proven benificial, like a glass of red wine is beneficial to the body for many reasons. One small piece is more satisfying than a whole bare of milk chocolate. Indugence in moderation is good for you. It's greed and gluttany that cause obesity, drunkeness etc. The things (Chocolate and wine) in themselves are not bad, but how they are used or abused can be...

I really appreciate the philosophy in your series. It's nice to see deeper thought involved than just making something "cool."

Thank you Jesus for Chocolate. I love what a pleasant time this woman seems to be having. I also love the discussion: I believe chocolate is a dangerous as anything else .. well my body is weakened by mercury poisoning anyway.. but for my birthday I got 20 dollars worth of chocolate and ate it over 2 week period.. this story does not end well. When the chocolate ended- so did my blood sugar and I went delusionnal and went to the hospital. It was mostly demonic stuff really but I was weak minded at the time >.< went mad hatter- but more civil. I like the stained glass windo, it is as if sh is only in her chair in her living room but as the flavor forms in her mouth her surroundings expand into a more beautiful scene until the chocolate taste is gone and you have had your fill and your atmosphere starts to slide back in around you but for a while it stil has that dream like fill all because of the little indulgence carries itself with you .. over the scrounged up rug and ash filled fire place.. the untidied pillows suddenly have a whimsicle flare rather than disgruntled misplacement. you know? How I thank God for chocolate. despite our conflict. we are on good terms now.

tu manera de mezclar la artesanía y la ternura de la forma más primitiva de poner el chocolate es una imagen que alude a la dulzura y la felicidad de los que trabajan desde cero al chocolate, nada de smog ni de fabricación en maza simplemente el agrado de sentir de algún modo en comunidad con la naturaleza de dar y recibir a la misma tierra.
no se por que el mosaico que esta detrás me recuerda a tierras mexicanas...
más que nada me parece una forma única de recordar quienes somos y de donde venimos
por que en algún momento nuestros ancestros fueron artesanos que no convivían con inmensas riquezas pero que si convivían en paz con la tierra y/o la naturaleza sintiendo y siendo felices atreves de esta.
me hubiera gustado que la imagen de la mujer el amarillo que la rodea sea más ardiente como si estuviese iluminada por la madre naturalesa algo más de naranja...pero es solamente un gusto personal expuesto libremente
me agrada exageradamente de que fuera de tu maravillosa técnica y base académica bajo esa imagen existe un sentido mucho más importante

por que quien tiene la habilidad puede aprender a hacer algo hermoso...pero son pocos quienes dicen algo importante debajo de los trazos como tu lo haz echo y eso es un nivel más elevado

no te diré que esta hermoso ni que es excelente supongo por que es una verdad que has leido y escuchado mas de 9000000(y que estan en lo sierto)
lo que yo veo y ciento es:
felicidad, armonía umildad y paz. y eso es más importante que tu estupendo trabajo me alegra mucho que tengas ese equilibrio tan especial y escaso
felicitaciones
---------------------------------------
your way to mix craft and tenderness of the most primitive form of putting the chocolate is an image that refers to the sweetness and joy of working from scratch chocolate, no smog or manufacturing hub simply pleased feel in some way in community with nature to give and receive the same land.
not that the mosaic that is behind Mexican land reminds me ...
I think more than anything one way to remember who we are and where we come
that at some point our ancestors were artisans who were not living with immense wealth but if they lived in peace with the land and / or the nature of feeling and being happy for this dare.
I would have liked the image of women that surrounds the yellow is more fiery as if lit by the mother naturalesa more orange ... but that's just personal taste freely exposed
I like that grossly out of your wonderful technical and academic background in that image there is a much more important

that he has the skill can learn to make something beautiful ... but few people say something important under the lines like you do miss and that is a higher level

I will not say that this beautiful and that is great I guess that is a truth that you have read and heard more than 9000000 (which are in the desert)
I see and what percent are:
happiness, harmony and peace umilde. and that is more important than your great work I am very glad you have that balance so special and scarce
congratulations

I hope the choc is at least 70% cocao! Seriously, I think this is an amazing piece of work. It conjures up a scene from a byegone era, when people had time for themselves, when ornate and intricate surroundings were the norm, and when the problems of the modern world were not even thought of. Beautifully done. :winner:

Beautifull!:clap: I like the light and the happiness of the woman! The way as cocoa tree is growing arround her and getting more and more place in her life, like a drug is very impressive. Anyway, a drug could bee something leading you outside the reallity and your social life... But chocolate is a pleasure we share...Perhaps, joy and pleasure are drugs??? So we should pray and work! :rofl:

A part of my point is that in the end, everything can "lead you outside the reality and your social life", make you crazy, or make you die. It is all about moderation, and personal choice. Why should a food addict be treated any differently than a drug addict, for example. Or a parachuter! It's ridiculous!

Yes, exactly. Unfortunately sugar gets you addicted quite fast as well. If I eat a lot of sugar for a couple of days, I find it a bit harder to not eat sugar than if I hadn't, if you know what I mean. It is all about the motivation, and will power to continue or stop.
