Wayne Thiebaud


Sunday afternoon I went with my daughter to see Wayne Thiebaud. At the Laguna Art Museum.
It was inspiring! The show was amazing but to hear him talk was wonderful. He spoke for about an hour about so many things. One thing he mentioned was how painting was very much like humans. The ultimate product is like the skin of a person, and the build up or what is underneath is like the soul and bones of the person. It seems like he is very interested in the final product. The application of paint is critical. He is so good at light and form. I have always been a huge fan of his work and for me It was a thrill to meet him.
