The beautiful and ever-changing snow art created by Jef Schobert has drawn area-wide, and at times, nationwide acclaim. Jef lives just down the street from John in Stevens Point and a few years ago, after he started noticing Jef's work, John began making light paintings of some of his favorite sculptures. (You can see more of his work on Facebook—search Snow Art Zone.)
Light painting involves making multiple exposures of the subject using LED flashlights. And because of the mostly monochromatic look of snow, the best way to enhance the features of the sculptures is to use light and shadow. John's unique use of light in this manner helps to bring out the whimsy and artistic quality of Jef's art.
Jef is a disabled veteran who lives with chronic pain. And despite the cold weather and obvious physical exertion, he delights in the physical manisfestation of ideas in snow, bringing his artist visions into focus, to the joy of everyone who passes by his house on Clark Street. Unfortunately, the nature of his work means it is temporary, often standing just a day or two before he tears it down and begins a new creation. (Or when Mother Nature decides to do it for him.)
