When a person says, "That looks good enough to eat," they just may be talking about the paintings of Pamela Michelle Johnson. After all, these hyperrealistic renderings of desserts and snacks are so true to life that people could easily mistake them for photographs of the real thing and be tempted to search out these savory sweets for themselves.

I think many viewers will be shocked to learn these Pamela Michelle Johnson creations are made entirely with oil paints. It's amazing that she's able to render the fluffiness and texture of baked goods without the aid of digital technologies. Even more amazing, however, is her ability to convey light and the glossy sheen of pancake syrup and gummi bears. Johnson's immaculate attention to detail is what ultimately makes her images extremely difficult to discern from their respective tangible counterparts.
