Salad Art

Our church has attracted a number of artists.

My daughter’s boyfriend pointed out recently works of art being created right under my nose, by my very own wife.


Pretty impressive (and not even her best).

Obedient, too. Calvin Seerveld in a rare book called Rainbows for the Fallen World (rare everywhere, but still available in Canada here) argues the importance of what he calls the believer’s aesthetic obedience – that we are all as disciples of Christ called to make our world beautiful.

It’s a great concept illustrated in Barb’s temporary creations.

Mine, I fear, lack her aesthetic touch.

UPDATE: The book is available for $25US and postpaid, apparently, to the US here. The Calvin College says this about the book: “A must read for anyone interested in aesthetics.”

    You're right about the salad: Barb's art is fruitful (and nutritious)! And I love Rainbows for a Fallen World. I used it for an aesthetics course and found it very insightful. Thanks for the link!

    As a Seerveld fan, I loved this! (Thank you to Alexandra Kuehne Bush, who pointed me here.)
