Slices

I want to share something Wayne Thiebaud said about his luscious paintings -

"Most of [the objects] are fragments of actual experience.  For instance, I would really think of the bakery counter; of the way the counter was lit, where the pies were placed, but I wanted just a piece of the experience.  From when I worked in restaurants, I can remember seeing rows of pies, or a tin of pie with one piece out of it and one pie sitting beside it.  Those little vedute in fragmented circumstances were always poetic to me."
