    In Smithsonian Magazine a couple of years ago:

    Wayne Thiebaud Is Not a Pop Artist
    He’s best known for his bright paintings of pastries and cakes, but they represent only a slice of the American master’s work

    Here’s a link to the painting that they talk about in the beginning of that article, “Man in Tree 1978-2010” (it took him 32 years to paint):

      It says in there “landscape paintings . . . represent a new direction in his work begun about 15 years ago and inspired by an almost forgotten corner of nearby countryside . . . the Sacramento River delta.” I was really impressed with “Brown River, 2002” and I can see that becoming one of his signature “masterpieces” in time.
