TAFFY 6"X6" oil on canvas

When we were in Maine a year ago for a painting workshop I bought a box of Salt Water Taffy because I was attracted to the colors. My plan was to use them in a painting so the box of candy went straight to my studio. I have a bad habit of snacking when I paint so I was eating the taffy and at the same time, trying to save some for a painting. The taffy is so old that it crunches when I try and eat it. What we won't do for a sugar fix. These old candies are all that is left of my original purchase. I should throw them away now that I have painted them but they are so well preserved, at this point, I may just use them another time. Or in an emergency, I may be forced to eat them.
