Tribute to Thiebaud

Photographer Sharon Core has done an amazing series paying tribute to my favorite painter Wayne Thiebaud. Here's his painting (above) & her photo (below):





You can see the whole collection at the gallery's website. Such an interesting concept & the control of lighting & styling in these is inspiring!

he's one of my favorites too. i'm decorating my soon-to-be-here baby's nursery and using a few thiebaud postcards as prints to hang in the room.

The photo is so amazing to me, that I had to read more. I found out that she even did all the baking for the shots and at one time had a baking business. Thanks for exposing us to her work.

My husband's first birthday card to me [pre-dating] was one with this painting on it. The photo is amazing.

I see from your "readworthy" list that we both share a 'Me Ra Koh Photography' love.
