    INTRICATE SAND ART BY ANDRES AMADOR Andres Amador works out of the wide beaches of San Francisco. When asked why he prefers to create his art on sand, Andres answers: “Working with this medium, there is no mess to clean up, nothing to put away or store. The ocean prepares a fresh canvas daily.”. He understands that the beach is not a very reliable canvas and that the art he creates will be washed away by the tide, but he loves the enormous space the shore offers.
