Yantantethera put the clues together. Yes there were clues. I made sure that I picked an unfamiliar work with familiar points of reference in it. Look at the wall behind Betty Jean and the table in front of her. And that orange/peach line. It’s the same in the painting below. Wayne Thiebaud is one of my favorite artists. I could stare at his work all day. I’m going to have to make my visuals harder to figure out the next time.

Here is maybe a more familiar work of Thiebaud’s.
And a nice bio on him is here. As much as I love his food related work, it’s his landscapes, hiway scapes and portraits I really love.

    I thought it was hard! But then I’m definitely not an art historian…

    Oh, my goodness. I can’t believe I missed this one. I love Thiebaud!

    I’ve never heard of Thiebaud before. You keep saying that your contests are easy… that must make me laughably simple-minded. Does he often used a peach line in his work? Hope all is well with you.

    Neat artwork. Very interesting, never heard of him though.
