Summary of Summer 2010

We Torontonians are so lucky to have a clothing optional beach just minutes away from a congested downtown city. I am fortunate to have a place to do my art au naturel. Art is meditative, therapeutic and the beach embraces that calm. Meeting people from all walks of life is an adventure in itself. The beach buzzes with secadas, laughs and people of all ages playing. 

 The most popular and well received sculpture was diablo, the huge teddy bear. Doing mainly erotic/nudes previous to that probably kept some people distant  but how could a teddy bear be scary.  The trophy for me that day in making diablo, was an eight year old boy coming up to me and exclaiming ‘Did you make that bear?’ really staring at it and then he said ‘cool’

Then I experimented on different subjects and had fun working with different coloured sand and of course all the natural props the beach had to offer.

Art comes in many forms and although I work hard and am not compensated for it I truly enjoy beautifying the beach as I am surrounded by the awe of nature.

Kick back and experiment, allow yourself the vulnerability of being completely free, no clothes. We are all perfectly imperfect and there is no better feeling than the sun warming us.

How bland the world would be with white walls and no art. Feel from within and create your own art. We all have some hidden talent waiting to be unleashed.

Thank-you for viewing and I appreciate comments. Would love to further my work in the art world and am open to discovering and learning more.  If you are a resort owner that has a clothing optional beach I am for hire. I will pack the sunscreen.

More to come …

The Sensual Sculptress

2010 Summer – Hanlan’s Point Sculpture – Aug 8

The sound of the secada encircles us everywhere  at Hanlan’s. I carried darker sand from the shore and experimented with the light sand for a very nice contrast and end result.  Feathers helped to carve the wings. After completion the secadas were content and the buzz was medative.

I experimented with different colours of sand and the beading was done with rocks and stones from the beach – the possibilities are endless, there’s so many things you can make out of sand and in so many ways

2010 Summer – Hanlan’s Point Sculpture – Aug 3

 I had the participation of a number of the ladies on the beach (as I’ve never had this experience).  I think the shape and slight distortion of body really help to capture a moment

Made on a platform – he had a snail at his tail and was textured by the edges of rocks.

This was an experiment with faces, was a very trying day because I was cramping – but I survived and finished my sculpture.

Celestina was a tad controversial because she was such a young subject – and lying on a coffin, but the end result was that she was peaceful … and even received flowers from Margarethe

2010 Summer – Hanlan’s Point Sculpture – July 27

Arrived at the beach early – it was an overcast day, looked like rain.  Therefore it was quiet – took the sand from two previous sculptures and this was the result.  The rocks I found for teeth even had cavities!

My playmate’s bear – he was huge.  I experimented with fingertip texturing for his fur

The day I forgot my spraybottle – but I guess she was wet enough and didn’t need it
