Mystery Painting, or, Am I Crowd-Sourcing Yet?

If anybody out there knows who might have made this painting, please let me know. Email me at rastinirv [at} gmail.com.

I "rescued" this from a Washington, DC-area thrift store last week. It's 40 inches square, appears to be acrylic paint, and is on canvas. It is signed "CAMPOS" in red in the lower-right corner. It depicts a chocolate-covered cherry (aka cherry cordial) sliced in half and rather luridly dripping. No other clues: no date, no title, no paperwork.

It's a very accomplished piece regardless of whether one finds it a compelling work of art. I'd love to know more about it!
