One of my all time favorite artists is Wayne Thiebaud (pronounced tea-bow.) I love his cake and candy paintings. His current work includes colorful landscapes as viewed from the sky. People frequently refer to his paint application as frosting like... Today's painting reminded me of why I like his art so much. There is a certain joy when the color says what you want--exactly like how you wanted to say it! It is sweet indeed. I feel it in my own work every once in a while (today for sure) and I can only imagine Wayne sees and feels it all the time.
