In Others’ Words: Alive
I am astounded by people who can take a massive block of packed snow and turn it into an “I gotta take a picture of this!” work of art.
Me and snow? The relationship is limited to enjoying watching it fall from the warmth of my home or being the photographer when my husband and youngest daughter build a snowman.
Snow + artist = things I never imagined
You’re never going to find me at the International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge, CO as anything more than an appreciative spectator. No standing outside bundled in the cold and chipping away at a block of snow searching for the beauty hidden inside.
But I bet the sculptors loved transforming those white squares into a laughing boy or an evil Medusa or the book cover for White Fang by Jack London.
What about you? Would you be a spectator at an snow sculptor contest — or would you like to have a go at creating a piece of art that will melt within a few days?
In Your Words: So, let’s toss around a couple of questions today, just for the fun and the purpose of it. What makes you come alive? And what are you doing about it? And yes, I’m willing to bet your passion meets others’ needs!0 I like this!
