I enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen this morning. I can’t say the flavour of my creation was perfect. It was missing something creamy and salty, like cream cheese or feta cheese, instead of the cheddar I had on hand. However, there was something about the mix of ingredients and photographs that spoke of flavour and colour saturation.
A masterpiece, to me, whether it is a meal, a structure or a painting, is made up of things, that when combined, form something very satisfying or pleasing to the senses.
Not everyone will agree on what is or isn’t a masterpiece. Sometimes a masterpiece is controversial or abrupt and other times it is subtle or unassuming. Regardless it stirs something within a person.
In the end, a masterpiece is devoured repeatedly as we try to fathom what brought the creation to life. However, the simple fact of the matter is, it is all about getting the combination of those initial things just right.
From there, a masterpiece creates a life all of its own.
