I was recently invited to participate on a team in a local "snow sculpting" competition. Here is a picture of our final piece, two swans forming a heart. Boy it was tiring. Although we didn't win the judges heart, which would have moved us into "nationals", we did win the local "popular" vote. Residents and passerby's could purchase stickers for $1 (which all went to a local charity) and they then placed the stickers on a board as their "vote". Apparently people liked our snow sculpture and many had a chance to take their pictures with it. As an artist it's always good to stretch yourself and learn new mediums and break away from the norm. This opportunity helped me learn and develop more than I expected.
