I purchased the wooden sign. I painted it with tan acrylic paint, applying mung beans in a smiley face pattern. I filled in the face with field peas and covered the remaining space with crowders. I titled, signed and dated the back and finally sealed the entire piece with a glossy finish to bring out the beauty of the beans and to protect them.
Bean Happy is approx 8" x 4.5" and includes a sawtooth hanger for wall display. Made in the USA, this fun and happy piece is sure to chase away the blues. A great gift (even for yourself), Bean Happy is ready to ship immediately from the golden state of California.
My Bean Art idea came to me while at my favorite roadside farmer's market, who offers a great selection of beans you don't normally see in the grocery aisle. They still are largely my supplier (though they are not aware what I do with my purchases). I love supporting my local farmers who are growing something other than the four crops the US government subsidizes: wheat, corn, rice and soy.
