I have discovered someone who is as big a fan of candy as I am.
Yes, it’s possible.
Dick Close, a graphic designer and illustrator from Cincinnati, had a booth at the Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival in Midway, Kentucky. The artist also enjoys watercolor, and his favorite subject matter is candy and popsicles.
I totally get that.
My favorite painting was of these three red gummy bears.
But I think you’ll find his entire portfolio is a sweet treat.
By the way, I did ask the artist if he eats the candy when he is finished painting. He said no.
He has talent and self-control that I will never know.

I’ve been big on awards shows since I was a little thing.
Had an acceptance speech ready. Practiced it in the bathroom mirror. Updated it each year as people made (and fell off) the list.
But there was never something like Toddlewood around…
I might have lost my mind.
Toddlewood allows little kids to dress up — in exquisite detail — as their favorite Hollywood celebs. New York photographer Tricia Messeroux began turning small fry into celebrity look-a-likes in 2008, and now her portfolio numbers over 100.
The red carpet shots and movie posters that she has recreated with little kids totally creep me out. But when I think of how excited I would have been at that age…
I’m confident my mom would have said NO.
