Have you ever been walking along a rocky shore and come across rock sculptures (rocks stacked into tower structures)? British artist Andy Goldsworthy is thought to be the original founder of “rock balancing”. Goldsworthy uses nature’s bounty as his tools and creates beautiful works of art with sticks, rocks, leaves and snow! I am a HUGE fan of his work…how amazing it would be to round a corner on a hike and come across one of his masterpieces! In recent years I’ve been greatly influenced by Goldsworthy…sitting on beaches creating shell art, and on hikes with my kids…decorating wooden bridges with vibrant leaves and of course attempting to create rock sculptures. Art is Everywhere!
The beautiful sculptural art of Andy Goldsworthy can be found in several published books of his work. They’d make great Christmas gifts! (hint! hint!) Check them out here.
