There is a proverb says, “success is a journey, not a destination”. The doing is often more important than the outcome.

Tim Bengel is a German artist who invented a magnificent technique that requires sand to draw complex design on a canvas with sticky surface.

Tim Bengel’s ability to transmit his ideas to fine art pieces has allowed him to create unique work of art by carefully pouring different amounts of sand throughout a slowly drying sticky canvas with his hands and a scalpel to perfect the curves and edges of the figures.

He begins by spreading black sand and bits of gold to form the figures that will stand out.

He then spreads white sand over all the canvas to fill the empty spaces. While it may look like Bengel is making a mess on a each canvas, his art transforms as soon as he lifts it up and the sand cascades off.

At the end I want to say, all we need is the plan, the roadmap, and the courage to press to our destination.
