Art on vacation

We returned Sunday from a vacation in south Florida.  Saw a lot of wealth, saw a lot of For Sale signs.  We also saw some interesting art, like this sand rhino on the beach in Delray, and this woman in the window at a St. Augustine gallery:

I love them both.  The gallery in St. Augustine was closed, so I didn’t get to see the piece up close.  We rented one of those cabanas you see behind the rhino, however, and in the three or so hours we were there, dozens of photos were taken of him (as well as a lion lyin’ beside him).  It occurred to me that the supposedly transitory sand art would find itself digitally spread around the world, viewed by hundreds, while the more permanent work of art might never achieve such visibility.  Life is short, art is long—in all sorts of ways.
