Sweet Thing

Today is my sweet husband's 39th birthday.  When we visited the SFMOMA last week we both gushed over a Wayne Thiebaud cityscape.  Best known for his dreamy pictures of food, in milky pinks and yellows, I wanted to share some of his work today.  Still a practicing artist at the age of 92, Thiebaud is a contemporary of some of my favorite artists including Jasper Johns and Richard Diebenkorn. He was also a long time professor at UC Davis, our alma mater, which makes him extra special to us.
