Doughnuts and Robots!

"Break Fast!", 2008

16" x 12", oil on artboard

This is my tribute to Eric Joyner, an San Francisco artist who does more than anyone could ever imagine with the absurd theme of robots and doughnuts. I was having trouble thinking of what to paint next, so I thought I would give robots and doughnuts a try. It was a lot of fun. "Sparkling Mike" and "Chief Robot" race to be the first to intercept an unattended plain glazed left on a small breakfast table overlooking Jupiter and the belt of stale doughnuts that runs between the giant gaseous planet and its innermost satellites.
