Here is an ode to Wayne Thiebaud's colorful and somewhat abstracted landscapes. The city scapes are captivating the way the hills look so steep and distorted. They are all California scenes. The rivers and farms remind me of a fleeting visual memory: flying over Amsterdam's outskirts, looking down to see tulip fields and waterways.
