I knew it was an incredible journey but it has turned into a phenomenal journey. One when finished will probably be a great milestone and one well worth the price. Just look at how many hits your post has had. That many people coming to look at your work and to get updates. Quite a journey I'd say. Thank you so much for sharing with us and I'll wait to see your finished Jerusalem. 

Yes it has Jinjeet...QUITE a journey! But at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel now and I am feeling more confidant (this time) that when I next say the painting is completed, it WILL be! And yes I do see that I have many garnered a lot of hits on my post which is also why I perservered as long as I did. I could not disappoint all those people. AND MAYBE, just maybe, I might have encouraged somebody else to give this unique medium a go and hope that he or she will post here how it is going so we all could enjoy their journey as well. I would be delighted to help them in any way I could should such occur. Will post another photo when I have some more work done.
Say...how about a jelly bean painting challenge here??? Now that would be interesting! LOL! Just kidding!

Wow. WOW!!! This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I congratulate you on your vision and patience in completing this project! I'd heard of using jelly beans for paintings before but I've never seen one like this. Absolutely wonderful, I love love love it. It sounds like a heck of a lot of work, but... imagine the possibilities! Do you think you'll do another jelly bean painting after this one is finished? I would love to see what you'd come up with next. And someone's probably asked this already, but how many beans did you consume while working?? Haha I love jelly beans, I don't think I would have been able to stop myself from munching along.
Congratulations on a wonderful piece!

Yes, I have been asked that question a lot. It is utterly impossible to NOT eat them! I DO try, and every once in awhile I succeed, not often (LOL) but every now and then. You just can't resist; the jelly bellies are just too darn delicious!! Also, I put up another post showing one other JB painting I did prior to this one. That one is titlled "Infant Sea." I will probably do more because I so like the mosaic effect the JBs create.

Infant Sea is incredible...and this is even more INCREDIBLE (squared!).

Just curious...do you use black licorice for the outline? Also, what do you use to seal it (especially from humidity and bugs)?

Thank you so much for sharing your progress photos.  You are an inspiration!

Thank you everybody!! Your comments, questions and suggestions are all more than appreciated and welcomed by me. If you don't mind, I am posting this one post in answer to all of you.

Yes, I will no doubt do more JB paintings and I did put up another post for my other JB painting in response to your posts. That one is titled "Infant Sea" and it is my very favorite!

Heeeey...surely you know the staunch jelly bean law, right? It states, "If in hand, put in mouth!!!"  Grin
 
Also yes I use black licorice for my outining. Jerusalem is made up of jb's, licorice and hot glue. Let me explain that ANY painting whether it is jb's or not SHOULD be protected from heat and humidity. You will never see a painting on a wall in a museum opposite a window because even the sun is lethal to paintings. I keep my jbs in a room that is climate controlled (like any museum would do as well). I keep the air constioner on low in the summer. The winter needs no further precautionary methods as the cold is good for jbs. Just don't leave windows open, period. Bugs not a problem, don't know why, they just aren't otherwise I wouldn't leave my jbs all over the place in open tins as I do. I only put away the colors I no longer am working with. I keep those in plastic containers or bags - sealed. There is bureau I use to hold my stash for safe keeping.

About that dark blue sky. No hon...if you were standing in front of the painting and saw it in person...ugh! It would hit you hard. I know when I first designed Jerusalem I DID like the dark blue sky, it looked great in the pre-painting! But not so i when it was actually implemented and completed in the jb painting. I also took out the sun which I really, really liked, but it too was out of whack because of its position in the painting which didn't validate the shadows correctly. So...out that went too. Hated to do it, but...


Folks, thank you again for commenting, it's posts like these that inspire me as well. I really do appreciate all your support.
