how easy it is to walk in the snow matching the left foot to the left foot for the patter of drawing the whole work, one side and then the other, look and the fill in all in video.
Valentines are a stylized heart; in the very late moment of the bright setting sun I walked on to the snow covered pond on the very east end that is still in the line of the sun. I realize I have to walk in and straight toward the sun and then made the right lob around and walking back to the point. The left side.. can I make it equal in size, I watch with my eye walking around, and then down the center line in the same footsteps. back to photograph ... that is enough for the simplicity of Valentine's Day.
More close to where I live, in Greenfield Park, West Allis, where I used to ice skate, but now the snow is not cleared of anymore.. so on the sunny afternoon Februry 6th, I went there with an idea. I just saw the ballet Alice, Adventures in Wonderland and on the set was a labyrinth. But then the first drawing is a HALO with a four rayed cross.
The cold and sunny February 2 in the afternoon I went to Big Cedar Lake near West Bend, Wisconsin, I walked across the lake to the other side and across the narrow neck of land to Gilbert Lake that is perfectly pristine with white snow. Out I went to play with the star form...
Then I walked the Lynden Sculpture Garden grounds back to the big pond where I made a work in 2011 -- finding it pristine white snow. I walked out and used a Swiss Cross idea that I recently saw for a 'footprints in the snow' work here.

Sunday, January 19th, just after noon I went to the Lynden Sculpture Garden to ice skate, but the pond was too small and there was no one there that I could interact with. I did a short skate and spin.
