GREENFIELD, Ind.– It might make the streets slick, but snow is good for one more thing: sculpting.
At least if you’re a professional, like Rick Horton. On Facebook, he’s known as “The Snow Artist” and Horton says he’s been making these pieces since 1997.
Every time we get a big winter storm, he’s quick to get to work on his next masterpiece.
This year, he created a bald eagle in his front yard.
“It represents America and America has to be strong and I also chose it because Greenfield has a pair of our own bald eagles around here,” he said.
In the past, he’s sculpted Minions and a massive sleeping cat.
“It’s great. People come out and smile and see it and forget about their troubles,” said Horton. “A lot of people will tell me – this is the only reason we look forward to winter time.”
If you want to check out his work, you can find him on State Road 9 just south of the courthouse. You can also check out his Facebook page here.
