Stone Sculpture at the Beach in Carlsbad 

 

Artistry can show its face in many ways, and in interesting places, sometimes when least expected.

 

stone sculpture at the beach

 

We took a long walk along the beach on the boardwalk in Carlsbad this morning to start off the new year. There were lots of people out, many with dogs, enjoying our beautiful weather...a balmy 58 degrees and partially sunny!!

 

Along the path we came across this gentleman who was creating some stone sculptures. This cluster of 3 was done, but he was still workingon another so I left him alone. No doubt they will be there for a few days, then someone will come along and knock them down, or the wind will take care of that.

Hi Jeff Dowler - I noticed at the top of his creations that he placed a heart shaped rock.  I collect heart shaped rocks when I see them.  At first glance someone might see a fin or a whale tail but.... no - it is a heart shape. 

Very cool!  Happy New Year!

Lucky you to be able to take a nice walk today, Jeff - it's too cold here for us! LOL

Love the hearts atop the sculptor's creations - just in time for Valentine's Day!

Morning Jeff.

2018 has already started out on a positive note.  My goals are set, I'm already working on them.  We'll see how it goes in a month or so

That is quite the balancing act and I hope people will repsect it like a famous painting.

Without a lot of mortar or luck....the time spent will be washed away...good you could capture the art before that happened.

Oh, Jeff, I am in AWE! It would be hard for me not to just march right up to him, give him a hug and ask him how he's making this happen....oh, the patience it must take! 

This is so breathtaking for me that I had to "pin" it on one of my Pinterest boards, "Art for Art's Sake". 

Love it and thank you so much for taking a great photo and sharing it!

So happy that you and I have connected.
