    In celebration of Vincent van Gogh's masterwork "The Starry Night," Jelly Belly commissioned artist Kristen Cumings to re-create the famous painting completely in Jelly Belly jelly beans. Because Van Gogh's brush strokes went in a circular, swirling pattern, Cumings had to place each individual bean in the same direction as the brushstroke to mimic the effect and re-create it on a larger scale.
