Last fall an art critic for the New York Sun wrote me, wanting to know if William Lobdell had influenced Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings of San Francisco.  I told her that since William was 40 and Thiebaud 88, probably not.  She was impressed with his work anyway, which made me realize it was time to help William get a New York show. 

So I encouraged him to begin interpreting structures of New York.  The first one is above.  I’ll help him get a NY gallery soon.  The critic?  We’ll let her know when the show is on.
