And again, Wayne Thiebaud



I make no apologies for posting another video about Wayne Thiebaud. The man's work fascinates me and in this video there's a chance to see him applying paint.

Wow. No apologies necessary. What an interesting man and what interesting work. Thanks for posting this! Where have I been all my life?

Thanks for posting this--great to see him smearing that pastry-like paint across canvas.

About five years ago my wife and I stumbled on a poster in Malibu, California, advertising a Thiebaud exhibit at nearby Pepperdine University. The opening reception was just beginning, so we rushed over and were treated to Thiebaud himself, giving a talk and fielding questions. It was a memorable treat to see his paintings and hear him speak about his motivations and processes. He is personable and down to earth, as is apparent in this video.

Suburb. I like the way art teachers can talk.
