What is Art?  Art is an interpretation of something, adding your own unique twist.

It is a fact that fiber stitches and patterns have been around for generations. There are thousands of libraries of stitches from around the world, found on the Internet.  When you look at paint, the paint strokes and brushes have been around for generations as well.  Nothing unique about paint or brushes.  Look at the words in dictionary,  they are all the same.  What is unique about words?

One of my favorite activities is spending time with nature, at the beach.  I was out on the Tybee Island pier one day and these two young men were doing something in the sand with a rake. At first glance, I thought they may be maintenance people. The closer I got, I realized they were drawing something in the sand. Is it possible that sand is art?  Does anyone remember the bottles of sand?  Some have detailed images, where others were simply different layers of colored sand.  Here is a video example of sand art.
