Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Oil on canvas.
Still life painting of a tin of Lyle's black treacle.
Painted on a box canvas so need for a frame, varnished and ready to hang.
Reference material created using my own photographs and drawings.

In 1950 Lyle’s Black Treacle, with its stronger bitter-sweet flavour and dark black colour is launched.
The classic Lyle’s Golden Syrup tin as the world’s oldest unchanged brand packaging. It has remained essentially the same since the tin took shape in 1883.
Lyle had strong religious beliefs, which is why the tin’s famous logo depicts strongman Samson’s ‘lion and bees’ from the Bible’s Old Testament, registered as Lyle’s trademark. ‘Out of the strong came forth sweetness’, as the quote goes; where bees produce honey inside the lion’s carcass, rich syrup pours from the well-loved tin… And the logo and design remain unchanged to this day.
