Winter Paintings
Contest Directions: Upstate New York towns near the great lakes that border the U.S. and Canada are under historic snowfall of over 11 feet. Weather people say the snow is coming from Canada. Canadians say that they never get this much snow in a week, as they normally get this much in a day.
To mark this snowfall, you are asked to "winterize" any famous paintings by adding snow to them and adding warm winter clothes to the characters in the paintings. Adding snow is a must, adding winter clothes is optional.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Painting – a type of fine arts associated with conveying visual images by applying colors on hard or soft cloth surfaces, and also works of art created in such way. Most widely known are works of art performed on flat or nearly flat surfaces like fixed to a canvas-stretcher, wood, cardboard, paper, treated surfaces of walls (fresco) and etc. The snow just won't stop. Intense lake-effect snow squalls that buried communities along eastern Lake Ontario for nine straight days diminished Sunday — then started up again early Monday. Unofficially, the squalls have dumped 12 feet, 2 inches of snow at Redfield. If accurate, that would break the state record of 10 feet, 7 inches of snow that fell in nearby Montague over seven days ending Jan. 1, 2002, said Steve McLaughlin, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Buffalo. A weather service representative was being sent to Redfield on Monday to verify the total. The persistent snow bands that have wracked the county for a week were expected to finally end later Monday. However, the forecaster noted that a coastal winter storm expected midweek could bring another 6 to 12 inches to areas of upstate New York. As the bands shifted north into Jefferson County most of Sunday, residents continued recovering from the heavy snow. Roads were mostly cleared as workers turned their attention to removing the snow and trimming down 10- and 12-foot-high snow banks that continued to make driving dangerous.
