A Delicious Wayne Thiebaud Painting

Wayne Thiebaud was a magical artist of the mundane. He took what could have been modest still life paintings and made them striking, colorful compositions which also seemed to say something about American life. He lived a long and productive life, spreading joy with his works. What an epitaph.

NPR stated this:

“It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of a truly remarkable man, Wayne Thiebaud,” the gallery said in a statement. “An American icon, Wayne led his life with passion and determination, inspired by his love for teaching, tennis, and above all, making art. Even at 101 years old, he still spent most days in the studio, driven by, as he described with his characteristic humility, ‘this almost neurotic fixation of trying to learn to paint.'”

Wayne Thiebaud RIP.
