I have always marveled at beautiful sand castles that have required alot of creativity and work, yet are soon erased by the tide.
I am reminded of those sand castles when I go to the chalk art show at a local festival. Last year was the first time I “discovered” this interesting event and I’m so glad I did! It s fun to get to see people actually creating the art, as well as see the finished product. But last year, the next day when that street had been reopened and I happened to drive down it, I was amazed at how quickly the art was disappearing as cars drove over it. I give the artists so much credit for being able to create such lovely art, always knowing that it is only temporary.
When I was looking at this one, I happened to notice
… that her sketch that she was referencing was laying near-by. It was interesting to see what she was working toward.
I happened to notice after I had downloaded these pictures that this one was done by a young lady whom we have known most of her life. She is a very talented artist, and even better, a really nice person!
Just a box of inanimate objects until they’re in the hands of an artist.
Because the art itself is temporary, I especially like it that photos, mine and others, keep it from ever being entirely gone.
