Sugar Rush - Small Acrylic Painting Classic Game Still Life

"Sugar Rush"
6 x 6 inches
acrylic on 3/4" cradled panel

Candy Land! I remember loving it as a kid. Funny how it wasn't quite as much fun playing it with  my kids  ;-) Maybe it is because of the way little children just want to play the same game over and over again.....

This is from a vintage game board - circa maybe early 70's? It is just how I remember it, but different from the game today. The graphics on the modern game aren't nearly as wonderful. And can you believe they renamed "Molasses Swamp" to "Chocolate Swamp"?!!

This painting, along with the last five vintage and classic game and toy paintings will be going to Pop Gallery in Gloucester, Massachusetts tomorrow. Be sure to stop by if you are in the area!
