I am enraptured by this painting. In addition to the juxtaposition of the fragile eggshell and soft yolk, the strong color contrast between them also strikes me. The painting gives me a unique sense of peace, as if everything has fallen into place. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Lucia

Lucia’s hyper-realist depictions of food are enough to make even the passive observer salivate. Based near Asti, Italy, Lucia creates paintings that strive to be even better than reality. Her crisp backgrounds contrast with and highlight the vibrant colors of her edible subjects. Lucia has an impeccable understanding of color theory, and uses only four colors when she paints: red, yellow, blue, and white. She mixes her other delicious hues using only this primary color palette. Lucia is proud to work for herself doing what she loves. She finds joy going into the studio to her colors, favorite music, and “the smell of turpentine in the air!”
