ThankYou Mr. Thiebaud

Oil on Linen

This was a painting I completed for the Karin Jurick blog...Different Strokes from Different Folks DSFDF. It is always fun to take a break from my usual subject matter and "take on" a totally new challenge. This subject was of special interest to me, because Wayne Thiebaud has always been one of my favorite painters and I have followed his work from the early 60s. I always thought history would place him among the "greats" of the POP art movement. His works from 1962 that were rejected by so many NY galleries are now selling for over $1,000, once again, galleries don't always get it right.
