How do you know if you’re really committed to your art? Well, one good indicator is spending all day out in the freezing cold of winter trying to finish giant murals of geometric patterns in the snow. This is exactly what English artist Simon Beck does with his snow patterns. He painstakingly walks through miles and miles of snow, creating the pattern as he goes along. It’s amazing how he manages to keep track of his progress in the midst of fatigue and the temptation to just go inside, sit by the fire, and have a warm cup of cocoa.
The patterns, set against the untouched landscape, is absolutely beautiful and stunning. It’s a bit sad though to see it all melt away, but also exciting because we get to see Simon create new patterns next winter.
