Many Saturdays, I post interesting, unusual art by singular-minded artists, many of whom have been sidelined because their art is unusual. Today, on my walk, I saw unusual art again. Beautiful, black and ivory images. The artist was the switching of tide, from high to low tide. The designs are natural. No human hand designed them.
Sea or wading bird footprints at low tide:
Slowly receding water, etching the sand:
Water started the pattern, and the wind finished it:

Sure, “sugar sand” beaches are wonderful, but this mix of dark and light makes for a very interesting shoreline.
Have a creative weekend!
