art :: the sandman etcheth

This amazing Sand Artist, Jim Denevan, makes gargantuous freehand drawings in the sand with no measuring apparatus or aids whatsoever! At low tide he searches his wide sandy beach canvas for the proper stick tossed up from the sea. After composing himself and making the right mental calculations, he scratches through the sand, laboring up to 7 hours and walking as many as 30 miles to create his beautiful geometric designs. The sand etchings are just temporary though - and like sand castles are washed away with the tide.

I always loved building sandcastles and playing in the sand at the beach! Jim Denevan's beach etchings are JUST COOL!
