Wayne Thiebeau

I love the work of Wayne Thiebeau. I was fortunate enough to see his Retrospectives exhibit in Kansas City about 5 years ago. His work is beautiful and he reminds me of my great uncle Bruce who died in WWII. They would be about the same age if he were still alive. Bruce was also an illustrator and an artist in the army. He would paint pin-up girls for the officers. In one of his letters he wrote he said he wasn't in the war to draw! I think he brought beauty and distraction to men that were serving our country and missing home. Anyway, that's what I think about when I see Wayne Thiebeau's work.  This video tells his story. If you love art or dessert you'll like this video!
