This painting was inspired by my grandfather.  He was born in Milano and is a very good cook, especially of risotto Milanese with saffron and truffles!! Whenever he cooks this marvel, on Sundays, there was a discussion in my family about the butter: he thinks the butter is essential, but I disagree!  

I love this yellow color - it is vital and joyous! I use only four colors in my paintings: blue, red, yellow, and white.  I mix the rest of my own colors.  

This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. 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!”
