Believe mural scratched in beach-AndresAmadorAndres Amador spends a lot of time on beaches creating artworks, but he doesn’t use a paint and brush. He relies on a rake — and the Northern California coastline as a canvas —  to create intricate designs in the wet sand, which last only hours, until the tide comes in like a wet eraser.

His expansive artwork, like that of snow artist Simon Beck, spans hundreds of square feet and is a delight for beach combers lucky enough to gaze upon his finished designs.

“Its fun,” says the 42-year-old from San Francisco. “I get to be at the beach.”

Called Earthscape Art, his beach paintings were inspired by the markings made in the sand by his walking stick.
