Cakes, candies, and anything sweet was the subject matter of Thiebaud (1920-). I am sure everyone has seen at least one of his "sweet" images at some point. (hahahhhha!) Anyways, I wonder if Thiebaud has a unhealthy obsession with food to have it be his muse for so long.  How many years could one look at cakes, muffins and wonderful breakfasts without either craving and disgusting it?  Some critics say that he makes food unappetizing but I beg to differ.  Maybe it is my unhealthy food obsession but I think the way he uses light and frosting like brushstrokes to be quite scrumptious!
