These hunger pang-inducing culinary paintings will inspire your inner "food enthusiast" qualities.

The perk of these paintings is that you'll constantly have infectious meal inspiration surrounding you, but, the reality is, eating the canvas will make for a meal that tastes like cardboard.

Artist Joël Penkman creates her classical and almost Renaissance-style fine art culinary paintings using an original technique. Using egg tempera as her medium, Penkman tirelessly grinds her paints to turn them into gesso, which she then utilizes as a base for her paintings.

Not only will these gorgeous, hunger-inducing works of art tickle your taste buds, they will complement your sophisticated decor as well.
