Jelly Belly's are my favorites...especially the popcorn flavor! These art pieces are amazing (but what kept you from licking the art??) :) Love these!

Margaret Bednar said...

Lickable art. LOL. My girls and I are stunned and amazed. The Starry Night was our favorite at first, but the detain in the Mona Lisa won us over. Just Wow.

CC said...

You've done it again. You find some amazing stuff. As an avid beader, jelly beans are hardly a step once removed......
and taste a whole lot better! ;~)

OXO, C

Kala said...

Oh that cupcake looks so delicious - I have never seen one made out of jelly beans before!

Relyn said...

This is wonderful! You always find the most amazing things to do; the most creative people.

lisa said...

Oh my goodness, the Jelly Belly art is just amazing!! Thank you for sharing it here!

dona said...

Good heavens! That's really amazing: candies paintings! :)

Ginnie said...

It would be a sin to eat those paintings, DB...kinda like rain on sidewalk chalk art!!! I sure enjoyed listening (and watching) Natalie Cole's video!

Susan said...

Oh! I can't believe what I'm missing! Darn it. I sure could use some of this sunshine to brighten these gray days.

Two of my favorite songs. Thank you.

Ruth said...

Van Gogh's paintings are perfect for jelly bellies! And rats, mine are at the office, and I'm working from home today.

The Don McLean-Van Gogh video is wonderful, so beautifully timed with the paintings and lyrics.

And thanks, because I found a painting I want to pair with a Rilke reading and hadn't figured it out yet! (the church at Auvers)

This makes me smile. You go to the best places. Thank you for sharing here on your blog. Will send a link to my mom now. She's gonna love this too!

Ps
Jellybellys are one of my guilty pleasures. I don't care for Jellybeans but am basically mad for Jellybellys. Good thing they are expensive!

Marilyn said...

Love the Jelly Belly art. Someday I really want to visit the Fancy Food Show in SF.

Dear tchesney,
I love popcorn and coconut the best. The free samples kept me from licking the artwork, plus the artist and the throngs of people surrounding them.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Margaret Bednar,
I love visualizing your girls and you salivating at this art. It is hard to choose a favorite; I think I like the cupcake best. I didn't see it in person, I found it on Kristen Cumings' website, but I think the Jelly Belly shape and colors lend themselves to pop art.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear CC,
I wonder whether I would end up with any pieces left if I were to try to make a mosaic out of Jelly Bellies.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Kala,
I had never seen anything like this before either. Cupcakes and Jelly Belly candies would be a great combination!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Relyn,
I am so fortunate to live in this hotbed of creative energy!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear lisa,
Glad you enjoyed them!

Dutchbaby said...

Cara dona,
Do you think Leonardo would have approved?

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Ginnie,
I'm with you about eating these Jelly Belly candies.

I love Natalie Cole's rendition of "Mona Lisa". Since this post was about emulations, I thought it was appropriate to feature Natalie's version. I think her Daddy would have been very, very proud!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Susan,
Next year for certain - you and me, at the Fancy Food Show!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Ruth,
Yes, Van Gogh looks great this way! I was thinking that Andy Warhol would look great in Jelly Belly too!

I hope to carve out more time to visit the incredible Rilke blog that you and Lorenzo host.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Constance,
I can just imagine what you and your mom would create when unleashed with a room full of Jelly Belly candies!

I love to eat them too, and strongly dislike all other jelly beans.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Marilyn,
Come on down! The Winter Fancy Food Show will be in San Francisco again in Jan. 2012!

Margaret said...

...licking the screen is the image you should have! LOL

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Margaret,
:-9

Relyn said...

This makes me think of Sloane's recent school project. She wrote a biography of Ronald Reagan and created a diorama of his Oval Office. She and Jeffrey sculpted and carved the Resolute desk. It was complete with a little bowl of jellybeans. Cool, hunh? I can't wait to show her your pictures of jellybeans as art.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Relyn,
Very cool! I had to look up what the Resolute desk was - very interesting.

If Sloane is ever in the Bay Area, the Jelly Belly factory is right here across the highway from the Six Flags amusement and wildlife park.They give a tour with free samples.
