The Art of Food: Good Enough to Eat!

Everyone loves food, right? The smell, the taste, the look of your favorite food is just irresistible. Who can stop themselves from enjoying a tart and juicy apple, the smell of freshly baked bread, sweet and crunchy candy or a refreshing salad? I can’t! We get to see amazing art with our competition books and sometimes I can just feel my mouth start to water when a good piece of food art pops up on the screen.

I love watching cooking shows, especially the Great British Bake Off. Every time I see those perfect cakes and pastries I just want to bake and eat! It’s amazing what people can create with simple ingredients. Food can definitely be art, whether it’s a real life cake or a painting of a cake!

What are some of your favorite foods to eat or a food that you find enjoyable but challenging to paint?

I’ve pulled together 17 pieces of mouth-watering art from the Splash and Acrylicworks series. I hope you enjoy them and feel inspired to grab some fruits, veggies or breads and create your own art!
