Sugar High

Medium & Finishing
  • Got the munchies?

    In Sugar High, an intrepid Fisher Price explorer has scaled a 10-donut mountain, planting his flag at the peak of the doughy frosted goodness.

    And I had my own adventure with this painting as well - trying not to eat the subject matter before it was done. I had to go back to Krispy Kreme for a second dozen - but this time, I sprayed the new batch with artists’ fixative so I wouldn’t snack on them as well. (The sacrifices I make for my art...)

  • Befitting the excitement inherent in scaling Mount Donut, I ratcheted up the drama with the lighting. I positioned the lighting close-in, at the lower left. The resulting shadows are crisp and detailed and give gravitas to the composition.

    Other details

    The little figure is straight out of the grandkids’ toybox; the tiny flag is a cocktail glass doo-dad from a party store.

    For the donut stack, I didn’t need any kind of internal reinforcement; the donuts stayed in place on their own. But if you notice, the ones on the bottom are flattened from the weight of the ones on top.
