Some Pictures from the Art & Chocolate Reception honoring Zafiris and Justin Attaberry.

My friend John bought a painting from me and had an reception to unveil it. There was an unveiling of another painting too by fellow artist Justin Attaberry. And .... chocolate tasting. Details on the captions of the pictures.

Location: Beverly Hills, CA, Aug. 2008

Trees in Crete was the painting that John fell in love with.
I am excited that he got it!
To spice up the reception, he organized chocolate tasting.
Chocolate ranging from 6 to 100 dollars per pound
was cut in small pieces and assigned letters.
Eleven different types all together.
John and his new painting.
John made an introduction on the paintings and the artists.
Tyler was the first to try the chocolate
And then people were talking about chocolate and art.
And also talked how to spice things up.
The pink book is not about chocolate but about Death with Chocolate.
