I did this painting, Boys Making a Snowman, as part of recent series created for art prints and Christmas cards. In this painting, and the series, I wanted to capture winter scenes and moments that are typical for kids growing up in Muskoka and cottage country. It is nice to see that the kids up here still get great fun out of spending as much time as possible outdoors in all seasons. Northern and country kids don’t see snow, ice and cold temperatures as obstacles or hardships. We celebrate the winter season and the fresh opportunities to get outside to play with friends.
