Wayne Thiebaud in Palm Springs

Wayne Thiebaud

Yesterday Patty and  I drove 2 hours to the desert and 2 hours back to catch the exhibit of 70 years of painting by the American master at the Palm Springs Art Museum.

His works  done last year at 88 years old are as vibrant and exploratory as the ones from 60 years ago. Wayne Thibaud is still teaching (and painting) at 89 years old.

It was dazzling up close.  Painterly renderings of everyday images with paint so thick that you can almost taste the donuts and pie on the canvas.

You leave the exhibit with your hunger deeply satisfied.

It was wonder filled.
