Lessons From A Legend

The Wayne Thiebaud Retrospective at the San Jose Museum is an inspiration. Here’s what I learned:

  • Easter egg colors as a valley landscape are magical. I’ve got to get (or mix) more beautiful colors – rosy pinks, lemon yellows and sky blue.
  • Any content can be a painting…it’s all about composition. A lesson worth relearning in every painting.
  • It’s never too late. Thiebaud started a new body of work in the early 2000s…when he was already over 80. These beach scenes harken back to his childhood in Long Beach.

  • But don’t listen to me, the master is interviewed on the San Jose Museum website. Check it out.
