It’s a new year and I’ve been feeling the urge to create art. Paintings, anyway. I’ve always handled an airbrush the same way as most chocolatiers–sort of like using a mallet to put in a thumbtack. Figured it was time to learn a little finesse.

My art is ephemeral. After I dip bonbons I place them on the painting (entirely edible) and they transfer the colors onto the chocolate; the painting is destroyed in the process. When you eat the bonbon, you consume the art as well. A metaphor for life, I suppose.
