Is it Food or Art?

As a creative person, I’m always amazed by the creativity of others. Whether it’s reading the prose of a talented writer, or admiring the culinary creations of a chef –there’s something magical that happens in creativity.

Recently, my husband shared photos of food art creations by one of his co-workers. Man, I was blown away! I’ve seen the traditional, scalloped-edge watermelon bowls filled with fruit balls, but never any creations as intricate, as in the photos above.

The detail in each creation shows the passion and dedication of the artist — this is what I admire the most. The time and attention the artist devoted to creating a work of art, to share with others, is overwhelmingly evident.

So, is it food or art? You decide.
