Got sidetracked while looking for something on the net on a snowy day, and found some cool snow art! Simon Beck's snowshoe art OH WOW!
I want to make crop circles! I have always wanted to see one in person...

I'm amused by the cars too, need to go through a parking lot and doodle on cars... It's going to snow here tomorrow! Hmm...

I've been in the desert most of my life, the idea of playing with the snow is fairly new to me, snow angels is all I have ever done. Have to consider this...

I saw one of Simon's pics when I was looking for something on image search, and it tossed what I was looking for right out of my head. Amazing work!


I want to make one of these... I have painted oriental dragons like this, never made one out of snow.


Similar to one I embroidered on a sweatshirt, really crappy photo..

Not nearly as elegant, though two feet of snow in Seattle (where it hardly ever snows) is a big deal!

I made a snow crop circle! About 28 feet across, really hard to photograph. This is a composite pic, that has had the brightness/contrast tweaked to make it look better. Even standing on a ladder I couldn't get enough angle to see it clearly.
I give myself extra credit points for first time, an A for effort, a C for actual results. Not bad for first time!!
Made a rope compass, and used a hula hoop for small circles.
Had issues with the rope etc, when I divided it into 6 sections, I had about a 5 foot error. So it has 6.5 sections, and the odd one has a spiral in it.
Yay snow art!!!
