Born in the 1920s, Thiebaud is an American painter best known for his still life paintings of cakes, pastries, and lipstick. Much of his art is influenced by his experience working at a diner as a young man in Long Beach, CA. So in a way, you could say that his paintings are nostalgic, reaching back to fond memories. Your Project You are to create a still life painting inspired by Wayne Thiebaud. Using strongly lit treats (yum!), you will incorporate the qualities found in Thiebaud's paintings in your own painting.
