The Simple Joy of the Snowman!

The simple joy of a snowman. Whether we are building him out of new-fallen snow or watching him in our favorite cartoon, the snowman has been around a long time. The first recorded history occurred in 1380 with an illustration in a medieval book.

In the middle ages, snowmen were very popular, falling snow was free and sculpting snowmen became a way to express their creativity.

The 'Miracle of 1511' saw 6 weeks of snowfall in Brussells and many snowmen. A varied display that ran the gambit from political to a bit promiscuous, it was a unique display of creative genius.

Decorative painting has brought new life to the snowman and continues to do so today. An ever-popular painting subject, you can find many designs of snowmen in books and packets. It's time to start your Christmas in July...let's paint!
