“Mr. Snowman” is the second of the Skating Pond series which I am recreating. I love his little plaid scarf! Painting plaids is really fun and a bit of a challenge when I am doing so on such a tiny piece. He also looks a little more ‘fluffy’ in person. I am just going to keep scanning in the pieces now for consistency. When they are all done, I will take real photos using a camera and they may look a bit different.
The snowman in the original set looked kind of mean (he looked like a thug and like he was smoking a cigar!) so I made mine friendlier and happy!
I hope you like him!
(Remember if you click on the underlined name, you can get to the entire Picasa album and see the original set too!)

No one quite knows when Mr. Snowman appeared on the pond. It seemed like one morning he was just ‘there’. Was it the young boys that made him? Or was it the gaggle of little girls who brought him to life? One of the kids referred to him as the mayor of the ice pond and now he presides over all the skaters and activities of the pond like royalty. His reign will last as long as the winter’s cold and icy breath.
