Natural art work! Why destroy when you can create and have fun in the snow. The ‘Snow Drawings’ project took over a field near Steamboat Springs, Colorado by artist Sonja Hinrichsen and 10 volunteers in snowshoes.

Steamboat Today adds the work is designed to be impermanent, reflecting “beauty at the whim of Mother Nature.” Using Mother Nature, our environment, as the landscape for temporary art work is taking sustainable art to the next level.¬†Though the snow will eventually melt, Cedar Beauregard of Steamboat Aerials was on hand to record the work. You can see the video here.

I don’t know about you, but this is truly inspirational. How else can creative minds use nature’s beauty to create impermanent works of art?
