Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was really nice. It's always a lot of fun to see the holidays through the eyes of excited children. ☺

Today's inspiration fascinates me because the artist's creations are so ephemeral. Artist Simon Beck creates intricate and beautiful artistic masterpieces in the snow. He dons snowshoes after heavy snowfalls and uses geometry to help him make gorgeous and complex images. Some liken his creations to crop circle art; I find them simply amazing. Enjoy!

If you'd like to learn more about Beck and his snow creations, check out this story on ViralNova.



Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

  1. Sort of like crop circles... only out of snow. :-)

  2. There is nothing I love more that someone who comes up with their own manner of creativity and does it so very well... these designs are amazingly beautiful, and yet so fragile. Truly they are works of love!

  10. The amount of planning and then the time spent walking through snow is amazing. And all while knowing the short life of his creation. Such dedication! Glad you had a nice Christmas. The lack of kids really hit both my husband and I hard this year. Not that we think we should have had children, but that we both feel we would have been a terrific aunt/uncle and our parents would have been great grandparents.

    1. I also admire him for his work; it's so fleeting...

      Christmas with kids does seem different than Christmas without. A friend of mine at church mentioned that her husband appreciates the peace they have on Christmas morning now that their kids are grown. As toys whir in the background here, I can understand that! Still, I love the excitement the kids bring. :)
