Art out of food

food artJessie Bearden plays with her food.

I was always taught not to play with my food. Maybe that’s why I never became the artist I aspired to be as a child.

Actually I was discouraged from being an artist because I was told you can’t make any money at it.

food art 2God tells us to be like Him; He created. As much a I admire art around the world, none compares to the daily painting God spreads on his canvass of a sunset. None equals the beauty of a flower. Consider the lilies of the field…even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these — Matt. 6:28-29.

I’m going to be a fan of Jessie Bearden, who create surprising portraits out of food. And I’m going to keep writing.

But I can’t wait to get to Heaven to see the wonders of God’s art there. I admire His beauty everywhere here on Earth.

I bet the artists continue doing their art in Heaven.

  3. Amen! God is the Great Creator! He loves the creative process. I bet artists will continue to create in Heaven! Thanks for another great post and the examples of Jessie Bearden’s work!

  4. Amen. One of the great self-evident truths – the existence of creativity is just another proof of the existence of the Creator…

  5. Me too, wasn’t allowed to play with food…. You need to be good at drawing to do pictures like Jessie does. Well and afterwards you can lick it off…. Look at the beautiful world. No artist can compete with God and his creation. He gives us sunset, sunrises and so much more every day , every minute!
