Groundhog Day Art Context

On February 2nd of this year, Bethany's office had an art contest to draw your interpretation of Groundhog day using only crayons, and in the style of Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, MC Escher or Claude Monet.

Jeff's picture, drawn in the style of Picasso, tied for third place out of 11! Below are the pictures we drew. Enjoy!

Jeff's picture:

The groundhog in the upper right corner of the picture can not see his shadow in the lower left corner of the picture. While it is winter now (signified by the snow at the top and the calendar indicating it is February 2nd), spring is soon to come as evidenced by the sun shining brightly in the lower right corner.

Bethany's Picture:

The groundhog emerges triumphantly from his hole in the ground. He throws up his arms in celebration at not seeing his shadow and rejoices in seeing the sun. Still large from hibernation, he belts out an operatic type song of joy that spring will soon be here.

We hope your winter is going well and that you are as excited about spring coming as we are! As we post this, it is currently snowing.
