Have you ever seen the movie Mona Lisa Smiles with Julia Roberts? If you have then you will remember the scene where Julia is in the classroom and she asks her students " What is art?" The students give her some text book answer of what are is, but she challenges them to look beyond what was once defined as art and to consider a new style of painting art. Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying my photographs are art, but I think photos of food are beautiful! I love looking at cookbooks and magazines. I love food, but it is more than that. In collage and high school I took art history classes. I always loved the still life paintings of food. Did you know some of the earliest still life paintings of food go back as far as 70 A.D. and are found in Pompeii, Rome? Cooking is my canvas. I love combining different colors and textures to create a master piece. I may not be able to paint, but I can cook and I love looking at pictures of food.
