What is art?

Do you look at carrots and see hummingbirds?  Or mentally transform eggplants into penguins?  If you don’t, you’re probably like most people, including me.  But now you can discover what kind of magic happens when you do look at ordinary fruits and vegetables and see more.

  1. Thank you, Bookworm. I won’t look at fruits and veggies the same way again…

  2. Fabulous!!

    I particular favor the ones that are a single fruit carved or otherwise altered…..the combinations don’t seem as impressive.

    Great to see how some people’s minds work.

  3. All,
    There’s a whole set of this type of work for kids available through my one-time employer Scholastic. Very nice artwork – I believe the company is “Play with Your Food”. I left Scholastic on good terms – returning to the military for better pay (longetivity helps), though they had top-notch benefits.
    The funny thing is, I could go back there and ask for my position (still) even though I’ve been gone nearly five years now… And they’d probably take me back.
    Until later,
    SGT Dave – “Childrens’ books reflect the adult world in a shallow mirror – but with far more depth than the authors intended if you look closely.”

  4. With elementary school aged children, Scholastic is a big part of our lives (and that’s separate from the fact that it publishes Harry Potter). We have a whole lot of Scholastic books floating around the house, although I have to admit that we get them at Goodwill, where I can indulge my passion for buying books without breaking the bank.
