Wayne Thiebaud loves cupcakes, lemon meringue, and lollipops. He also loves to paint. And because he paints what he loves, many people think his art is simply delicious. Wayne started out as a cartoonist and later worked as a commercial artist. But what Wayne really wanted was for his art to be shown in a gallery. So he practiced his craft, imitating the masters in paintings of hot dogs, city streets, and other things that made him happy. Before long, Wayne had his own style-filled with rainbow colors and thick, textured brush strokes. But he was worried. Would people take his paintings seriously? In books like Andy Warhol: Pop Art Painter, Susan Goldman Rubin makes the work and lives of great artists accessible to everyone. This portrait of Thiebaud helps listeners experience the beauty he sees in the everyday. And the painter's most beloved subjects-cupcakes, pies, and candies-are sure to inspire young readers as well. "Draw till you get it right."-Wayne Thiebaud
