Gelato

Piece description from the artist

Although I prefer his landscapes, I think we all lust after desserts after encountering a Wayne Thiebaud cake. It is important for an artist to encourage his or her appetites, otherwise the still life will amount to a mirthless exercise in draftsmanship. In color theory I learned that although there is no such thing as an ugly color, certain colors and shades play together better than others. In creating the Limone flavored gelato, I kept reminding myself of this principle. Counter intuitive as it was, the gray colors worked best to portray that particular flavor.
