With the arrival of our warmer months, we have been getting outside more and more. We are still being constantly challenged by the new normal with the COVID pandemic, so we must adapt.
Spending more time getting out and about on the beaches is something that’s good for the soul and good for the imagination. I was at a number of beaches these past few months and smiled when I saw peoples interpretations of art using just driftwood and other materials that wash up on the shore. There are so many creative people just walking along the beach and then they get inspired.
One of our local beach artists is Paul Lewis (link below). He created his art out of the driftwood at Esquimalt Lagoon. What started out being a creative outlet has now become a must-see tourist attraction for locals and people further afield. His art has inspired other people to be creative or to just get out and admire his astonishing beach art at the lagoon. Creativity comes in all types and forms and I find it so inspiring to see the imagination at work even at the beach.
