Ol’ Man Winter is getting old. Winter is almost over and he’s worked very hard to bring many storms and blizzards. He is just about to blow his last storm of the season.

In order to make Him look old I needle-sculpted the face and hands to add wrinkles. The hand in the above picture is clenching a “snowball”.

My neighbour, Val Potter, cut me a piece of glass that represents an icicle that he uses as a staff.

His beaded cape and scarf are removable.
