Castles Made of Sand, 22 by 12 inches, oil on canvas on ACP. Completed October 2022.
This is the second in a series inspired by the Crystal Classic Sand Sculpture Festival held every November on the white sands of Siesta Beach, FL. As an artist, I am in awe of other artists who choose to express themselves in ephemeral media. These incredible constructions are created over a three day period, judged, and then hosed back into the white sand from which they sprang. This painting begins to look at the motives that drive this special group of talented people.
