FullSizeRender952795 IMG_20150814_173015993Once again a rainstorm reveals a RB Beach Glass made of actual beach glass crafted into a gorgeous light catcher by Alex Danford-Rincon. As with all his creations, Alex’s light catcher is made of beach glass he finds along the Richmond Beach shores of Puget Sound. Does this stand of bushes where it’s hidden look familiar to anyone?

As always, the art is free to whoever finds it. Happy hunting !

Since no one has reported finding #50 RB Beach Glass, here is a new visual clue for it’s location. Want an additional clue? Just ask on this site or any of the Facebook pages this appears on.

Now, back to the original post:

RB Beach Glass #50 is a genuine RB rock painted in abstract leaves by Susan Will.  Susan is the volunteer artist that began and manages RB Beach Glass: A Hidden Art Odyssey under the sponsorship of the Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA). Check out the post for #49 to learn more about Susan and her art.

The softball-sized piece of granite (?) was quarried right here in a Richmond Beach backyard. The abstract leaves are painted in watercolor with permanent ink marker outlines. The finished art was covered in several coats of spar varnish to protect it from the weather.

As always, the art has been hidden on public property and is free to whoever finds it. Happy rock hounding!

#49-hiding2#49The latest hidden art for RB Beach Glass is a framed copy of a miniature pastel painting by Susan Will. It’s sealed in a sandwich-sized Ziploc to protect it from the elements with the Beach Glass tag attached with bright yarn.

Susan is the volunteer artist that began and manages RB Beach Glass: A Hidden Art Odyssey under the sponsorship of the Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA). She works in a variety of media and arts and crafts from painting to jewelry to set design to sculpture. Her specialty is abstract pastel paintings and she has shown and sold her work in west coast galleries for over 20 years. Her pastel portfolio is available at fineartamerica/susanwill.com.

Susan has been active in the community since she and her family moved to Richmond Beach 22 years ago. She served as RBCA vice president and is currently the editor of the Richmond Beach Community News for the second time. (Her first time as editor was in the late 1990s.) She also served as vice president of the founding Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation board and as president of the Shoreline-LFP Arts Council.

The miniature pastel painting was created at 100% the size of the copy for a special juried miniature art show.  As always, the art is free to whoever finds it. Happy hunting !

48-art  48-clue

Awaiting the lucky hunter this week is a beautiful glass flower – no water required! – by new contributing RB Beach Glass artist Patti Varley. Patti has lived in Richmond Beach for over 20 years and worked as a nurse practitioner at Children’s Hospital for over 30 years.

“In my new phase of life I am working part time, taking care of grandchildren and — who knew? — being a little artistic, too,” she says.

Inspired by a visit a few years ago to the Flower and Garden Show, Patti’s been making garden flowers out of plates and has generously shared one with us. Patti says she’s hoping someone will find and enjoy it.

As always, the art is free to whoever finds it. Happy hunting!

Since no one has found the first RB Beach Glass hidden art piece of the year yet, here is another clue. Surely someone recognizes this location! Rainstick by Beach Glass contributing artist Kirsten Novion will be a lucky find to kick off the new season.

#21-RBBeach-GlassRB Beach Glass #21 comes with a few more helpful hints than normal. This piece is hanging. Though it’s not knotted in place, seekers may want to have scissors with them just in case of tangles. It’s also not tied especially low, though not excessively high either. I’m about 5’7″ and it was easy for me to tie. Those with a little less reach may want to plan appropriately.

This location is not quite as visible as recent placements but it is in plain view once you reach it. If, that is, you know to look.

Thank you to all of you who have signed up to receive notifications about RB Beach Glass and to those who’ve followed the Facebook and website links. Please help promote this project by sharing it with friends. There are still at least two months of hidden art ahead of us. The more people who are interested the more items we’ll likely hide.

#20-RBBeach-GlassThe hidden art odyssey continues with another item not in deep hiding. RB Beach Glass #20 wandered out today.  This photo is the location clue. Since the item is so clear a second photo wasn’t needed. Future hiding places may have to be trickier, however, so our blog followers have a better chance of finding them before the casual passerby picks them up. Either way is good, but it’s great when they’re reported found. Still haven’t heard anything about the last two, but they are no longer in their hiding spots.
