I thought I had posted this here but I searched the entire forum and it's not here so guess I didn't. In any case I have been asked if I did any other jelly paintings so I thought to add this in. It is the only other JB painting I did; it was done 4 yrs ago. This one is my favorite one because I love how the ocean shows graceful movement. The painting took me 2 mos to do and was wonderful fun. It is 5 ft across while Jerusalem is 8 ft across. But this painting which I have named "Infant Sea" is a tad bit different than Jerusalem because I employed other edibles in it as well the jelly beans. Look closely!

Love the use of jelly beans as a medium.  I'm not sure I could finish a painting myself... I'd probably eat them all! lol  Great image choice to.

Wow-wow-wow...I can't wait to look at your other work!

I thought you stippled(sp?) with paint, but JELLY BEANS...what an incredibly beautiful (and sweet!) piece. 

I would love my DENTIST to have this in his office (instead of a fish tank and to show a sense of humor)

I agree, I know I posted it somewhere, maybe it was put in as part of a another thread like you said because I do a lot of other crafts as well and did post on them, too. In any case I tried every which way keying in all sorts of key words to see if I could snag it, but nothing showed up.

No hon, for me that would make it too easy, I prefer the challenge of doing it without a pre-painting. Besides I can't stand painting a thing twice. So...my paint is the jelly beans themselves. And yes doing it that way does make the work process way harder than it need be because if you make a mistake, it's not easy to correct tho it CAN be corrected...again, not easily. If you look at the other jelly bean painting I did of Jerusalem (which is also posted on this board), scroll thru the pictures there and you will see all I do is make a drawing and then I just paint it in with the jelly beans.

By "the color in between the jelly beans" I am assuming you are referring to the dark outline like the one around the baby? That is black liquorice. Any other color showing would be hot glue. I use hot glue rather than any other glue. I tried other glues but I didn't trust their staying power; the hot glue method does the trick for me.
Glad you liked it!  Smiley
