Something Green Sunday Sketch

Hello there Mint Creamy Eggs
I have missed your chocolatey goodness
I have missed the way that shiny alfoily jacket
hugs your wonderful curved middle...
the way you shine and glitter so beautifully
even under the ugly glare of supermarket lighting...

I have missed that magic creamy minty inside
so perfectly encased in smooth dark chocolate
The wonderful delicious knowledge that you are in the fridge
getting all chilled and crisp
just waiting for just the right moment
to make my day just that little bit better...
that little bit sweeter
and are so inspiring that I even try the dreaded inktense pencils again
and you make them look much better than they normally look
I tell you there is no end to your talents

Ahhh Easter thank you for heading our way again
and giving me my favourite Something Green
and now I am off to eat one of my subjects
or maybe both...xx

Absolutely beautiful here! However, I have shunned them at the store! Those little evil things beckon me to put them in my basket and buy them. They know how much I love them. You did them gorgeous justice and you actually made them look sweet and yummy and innocent...not evil at all. Those addictive little devil eggs! heehee

Ok, we are NOT friends any more!
Until this moment, I did not know that these incredible edibles EXISTED!!
I don't think that we get them in Canada so now all I can do is drool over your lovely God damn piece of ART.
I know you didn't know that I couldn't get them in Canada but I STILL BLAME YOU because I have to blame somebody and if I blame the easter bunny he'll not bring me the now less desirable other creamy flavored eggs. (damn prejudiced bunny!)
Seriously sad & lacking,
Jenn

Lovely work, but I keep looking in the other direction when I see Easter chocs in the shops! Valerie

Catherine... said...

Rita said...

We don't have those here in the US, I don't think, but anything chocolate has got to be good. ;)

"Dreaded Intense pencils"...??? Here I've always heard people rave about how great they are. You have me curious because I don't own them and had considered buying a small set because of the raves. These eggs do look great...and quite intensely colorful. ;)

Happy Sunday! :)

charming yummy piece.

Nora CG said...

Hi Tracey! As usual you have a stunning piece here. I love the color and everything on it..

On another note. I nominated you for the Liebster Award. I hope you accept it. Please go to my blog and grab your award. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Oh gosh. I love your eggs. Too funny, as I've been wanting to draw/paint some Cadbury Caramel eggs and keep chickening out. hahaha :D Either or, loving your work.

Lenora said...

With St Patricks, the whole time I thought these were a new mint version for March 17th!

Missy said...

Great piece, how fun! Those sound delicious, I want one!

Lynn said...

I think I would of had a hard time not eating them before I got them drawn! ;-))) So well done!

VonnyK said...

It is killing me just looking at that picture. I have been so strong and not bought a single egg but you are making me weaken. Look away Von, look away....

Love the pic though, but won't look again!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Seems like I see you every day or so. Today I came from CED and these Easter Eggs truly look good enough to eat!!

Jehanne's doodles said...

Oh these are super. Just reading about them makes me want to go and get some After 8's mints LOL

Nordljus said...

Wonderful! They look very tempting, I definitely wouldn't manage to eat just one. I simply LOVE everything minty. Unfortunately, I live in a country where the only acceptable form of mint is considered to be as tea or After Eight *sigh*. Although the chocolate as such isn't too bad here...

Harvest Moon by Hand said...

Oh my...it's probably a good thing I've never heard of these before otherwise I picture oodles of these minty eggs in the cupboard...the refrigertor...the freezer...where ever I could stash them.

Made a brownie pie yesterday with junior mints in the middle (between the brownie layers). I could only imagine how delicious that pie would be with those mint eggs you beautifully drew.

Had to laugh when you said you were off to eat your subjects. Very funny!

Gloria said...

Ummm, love those mints. You've done a great job in enticing me to buy some. tee hee. Great job!

Diana Evans said...

Gourdess said...

Mmmmmm.... please share them if your going to post such delectable nummies on your blog! Love them! Warmly, Tracy

Annie Smith said...

Yummy! My husband wouldn't eat a cadbury egg until he was an adult. His brothers had told him it was a real egg when he was little!! Funny story, your drawing reminded me of. :)

I always love catching a glimpse of your work!
