Dash of Cinnamon

I had been looking to do a follow up painting to the drawing of Sean in the sugar jar for a long time.  I came up with Dash of Cinnamon.  In this scene, Sean has escaped from the jar and has decided to treat himself to whatever else he can find.  He discovers yet another treat.
This is the first time, since some of my earlier self-portrait drawings, that I have included multiple figures of the same person.  You can read into it what you want, but my intention is for the figures to represent the different impulses we have.  In this case, two of the Sean’s have already grabbed what they want and run off.  The other two, stunned, are left behind and alone.
