I thought it appropriate to begin with the artist responsible for the title image for the 52 Artists Project.
Earthscape Artist Andres Amador of California creates amazing designs on the beach, inspiring others with geometric shapes and organic forms.
The thing that gives me joy: it creates its own motivation and inspiration that just is upward lifting, and I’ve seen that others respond to that and they want to share in it. It’s so cool and so much fun, especially with people who act as though they can’t draw anything, and then they’re so excited… doing something that resonates with people across cultures and ages. That feels really good.

I love that there are layers of understanding in ephemeral art that no other art can express, inviting consideration of what’s on the surface and how it’s evolution will unfold… The image may not be there tomorrow, but it will forever change that particular place for everyone who sees it.

Totally coincidentally, this beach art recently appeared in my own neighborhood along the Yellowstone River in Livingston, Montana:
