Art Heros: Wayne Thiebaud

As I was making pies tonight, I couldn't help but thinking of one of my favorite painters, Wayne Theibaud. I love his images of pies, cakes and other food stuff. I love the lines he makes, the colors he layers together, the thickness of the paint, and the brushstokes.

When I Googled him tonight I came across this endearing look into his work, and the artist himself, who is about as humble as, well, pie. This makes me love his work even more. I also love what he says about hope, and perseverance.

Thanks for posting that. I picked up a Wayne Thiebaud counting book for Abby a while back and I love the paintings in it. I didn't know anything about him, but I really loved the pictures. Happy Thanksgiving!
