found on the beach

Another rainbow edition of my found on the beach series. After I put this one together I realized maybe this wouldn’t be the best way to do them from now on since it looks so similar to the last one. Although, I do like this one much better without the white, black and grey section on the end. With the rainbow layout you’re looking more at the colors than the objects, at least I am anyway. It’s obviously way more visually appealing spread out like this, I’m just worried they’ll all start to look the same. Yeah, I’m definitely over thinking trash right now.

Anyway, I’m really excited about this set. I think there are so many neat little gems in there. My favorite thing to find will always be little people and animals.

Quick FAQ – things that get asked every Found on the Beach post.
Do you keep the things you pick up? No way. Once in a while I’ll keep something I really think is neat but I’m no hoarder.
What do you do with it when you’re done? I toss it in the trash where it belongs.
Was this really all from the beach in one day? For the
most part, yes. Sometimes if I find something I really think is neat on a
day I’m not collecting for a photo I’ll pick it up and hang on to it
until the next time I want to put together one of these.
Do you wear gloves? No, I don’t. These are things that
were washed up on the shore, not things simply left behind. They’re no
dirtier than the sand or water.

  • I think it would be cool if you left a "constellation" a couple of days and came back to see if someone maybe added to it, or picked some pieces up! And then you could throw it away. I would be thrilled to find something like this on the beach! Where I live ( in Norway) there is not much trash on the beach, but I like to organize rocks after their colors, maybe Iยดll try to take some pictures of it:) These posts are some of my favorites on your blog! thanks for inspiring!:)

    • The thing is it would probably get washed back into the water. I would LOVE to leave it there for other people to enjoy, these rainbow ones especially, but I just don't think it would be there when I came back.

  • I love these temporary artworks you create. There are always such interesting knick knacks hidden in there. It kind of reminds me of the "I Spy" books from my childhood. I think it's brilliant that you have found such a creative way to turn trash into something beautiful (I also think it's really noble of you to put it in the bin afterwards too!).

  • I was reading an article this week about a shipping container that spilled lego pieces into the ocean in 1997 and pieces are still washing up on the beaches and it made think of your beach series, and if any had ended up in your collections ๐Ÿ™‚
