Chocolate Truffle

It's my birthday today and I love chocolate, so today's illustration is a chocolate truffle.

My favorite color is also a chartreuse green which coincides nicely with the fact that the gemstone for August is the peridot. Always confused by the varying pronunciations of this stone (pear-e-dot) or (pear-e-doe). Personally I prefer the second because it sounds rather French.

If only the painting were real I could have a little snack.
