Avocado on Yellow Napkin

If habanero peppers are the taste of Evil, then avocados are the taste of Love. Wonderful, delicious, love. They are one of only two foods I can think of that go with any other food - meat, fish, fruit, any vegetable, dairy, and chocolate. The only other food that can do this is bacon. Cheese? Maybe. I'll have to ponder that...

Can you think of a food avocado doesn't go with? I didn't think so.

Avocado paintings are quick paintings, because it doesn't take long for them to turn color after they're open. Always a good idea to paint them first. No one wants a grey avocado.


  1. I really like the painting, but I am NOT a fan of avocados!

  2. Loving this and the avocados too! Chocolate, really? I must investigate this..
