Mr. T-bow


After we went to the Palm Springs museum of art I learned that Wayne Thiebaud, at the age of 88 still paints every day and lives in Sacramento. I began to fantasize that I would meet him and he would be enchanted by me at first site and demand that I sit as a model for him (crazy I know, all those happy colours did something to my brain). Well part of my little fantasy came true last Tuesday when Mike and I went to the Paul Thiebaud Gallery open house. Yup I got to speak to Mr. T for a few moments and shake his hand. As far as I know he was not enchanted by me, but I certainly was enchanted by him, bow tie and all.

ps I know this is an awful picture.
