Today's artist is American painter Wayne Thiebaud born in 1920. I picked him because everyone seems to be baking and like me, eating way to many carbs. This made me think of the paintings of cakes made by Thiebaud throughout his career.
Key point from TheArtStory.com
"While often associated with Pop Art because of a shared subject matter, Thiebaud is more often than not absorbed in traditional problems of painting - how to create depth without sacrificing the two-dimensionality of painting and how objects relate to one another. Through seemingly simple still lifes, Thiebaud evokes stories of plenty and loss, prompting an emotional response from the viewer that is absent in Pop Art."
"I think of myself as a beginner. Sometimes that's the whole joy. If you could just do it, there'd be no point in doing it."
