Fritos, Yes, No

Fritos, Yes, No
Oil paint on Panel
16" x 16" x 1.5"

My latest food obsessions painting, Fritos, Yes, No, has just been posted to my website. This is the fourth painting I've created exploring my love/hate relationship with food. Fritos, are without a doubt, my favorite lunchtime snack food. The saltiness, the oil, and the corn taste are all irrefusable. But, alas, it is these same qualities that make them so bad for me. It is so frustrating. So, when I do get a bag of Fritos they are gone in a minute. I shorten the ecstasy to not prolong the agony. Does it work like that?
