Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends.

Today's inspiration comes from sand artist Andres Amador. He's a San Francisco native who uses a single rake to create intricate "playa" (beach) paintings at low tide. In the short profile below, you'll see some of Amador's work and learn why he has chosen to create such intriguing but temporary pieces of art. To see even more examples of his creations, check out this story at ViralNova or go to his Web site, found here. Enjoy!



Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

    1. I would, too. I don't know if I could make such temporary art. I think that would be hard for me...

  5. That art work is huge and amazing. And so very fragile — here one moment, gone the next! Thanks for sharing it, Dana.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  9. I get his message. But doesn't it depend on having someone there to witness it? If a tree falls in the forest, if there is no one there, does it make a sound?

    1. I wonder what he'd say about that. I think he mentioned something about the process meaning more than the result. Maybe most of his enjoyment comes from the doing and not that other people see it?

  11. That was amazing and seemed sad thinking that when the tide come in it will all be washed away. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. I don't know if I could do so much work and have it be washed away so quickly. I like his attitude about it, though.

      Have a nice week!

  12. Very cool. It's like a zen garden, only bigger. :)

  13. That is so neat! I want to try that next time I go to the beach... well, not quite in that big of a scale!

  14. Nice find. He truly is one amazingly creative man.

  15. How awesome! I would be afraid that someone would step on it.

    But then again, I can barely build a sandcastle so I guess it wouldn't be a huge loss :D

    1. LOL Sounds like our sand art abilities are about the same. ;)
