Sand Art at the Beach

It’s summer and time for the beach. I’ve got my bucket, shovel, sunscreen and am headed for the sand. My inspiration is all the amazing sand art I’ve seen posted lately.

Here’s an elegant, sensual  sand castle I love.

Check out all the beautiful sand art sculptures that were at an annual competition in Canada.man sculpted in sandI like the simple artful drawings in the sand that include other stuff found on the beach like dried grass, drift wood, and shells.

    That truly is amazing. Makes me want to grab some beads and charms and make some beachy jewelry.

    Such amazing sculptures. Kind of sad they will be gone with the tide.

    Kathy, these are beautiful! And it's so interesting that you mentioned Jim Denevan–I have an environmental art calendar hanging in my kitchen, and Jim's beach work is featured for the month of June. So great!

    Ok, the circle sand art is just the coolest ever. Can't even begin to imagine how long this took, and where you can get enough beachfront to make it happen! I now live on the SC coast, and it's always busy with either humans or animals. Awesome work. Makes me start thinking of a necklace…hmmmm……
    Thanks for the inspiration!
