Last year I was introduced to the pork chop biscuit at Hardee's. "Get it without the gravy" I was informed. I still remember that buttery soft biscuit with the perfectly grilled piece of heavenly pork resting between the two halves. We all would take turns stopping on occasion. We eventually stopped though (after deciding that we could stand to use a few pounds). I was told recently that they no longer have the pork chop biscuit, sigh.....great things never last.

We had those in Australia some time in the '70's. (Though under the name "Hartee's"; can't recall why the difference, but it was the same company.) I vaguely recall the jingle "Hurry on down to Hartee's, where the burgers are barbecued. No mention of pork chops, though.
But to the image; I really like what you've done here. One of my favourite paintings is Edward Hopper's "Gas" and this reminds me a little of it; the store being a beacon of light against the darkness of the forest beyond. The sharpness of the main sign against the relative softness of (for example) the roof tiles is a most interesting and effective visual effect.

David-that biscuit is the only thing I've eaten from Hardee's since the '90's.
