Sandsculptures in the Sand

I wanted to share with you the beautiful sand sculptures that are created each day in the sand at Ocean City, Maryland. It's fascinating to watch them being built and transform into works of art.
The artist always creates sand sculptures based on bible passages. Here are two I took at night....simply beautiful.
He has collection jugs set out for donations. I was very delighted to see that he is still inspired to create and share his work with the visitors of Ocean City. He's been doing this for over 30 years...
Until next time.....

  6. Felicia,

    The artist has his own website showcasing his art. I was reading his site recently and was reminded of how he first started...he used chalk and drew his art on the boardwalk. I know we probably have some pictures of it around here as we've been going to Ocean City since the early 80's.

  7. Robin,

    They are too cool. When I was reading the artist website, he says he now uses a white glue mist to keep his creations intact for longer periods. I remember him rebuilding them daily and watching him work...it was fascinating to watch. But I guess with the artist aging, it is easier to build once a week and mist with the glue than to have to do it everyday.
