Kate McGinty reports:
Austin Woodruff was shoveling the driveway of his family’s Mason home when he absentmindedly threw snow at the garage.
And it stuck.
Amused, the sophomore at William Mason High School picked up one handful of snow at a time, pressing it into the brick until it stuck. For the next four hours, he continued until it formed a mosaic over the garage.
His 19-year-old brother, Andrew, posted a photo to imgur on Thursday, a popular photo website — and it caught fire. It had nearly 250,000 views within 24 hours.
“I’m always looking at sculptural things on the Internet and I’m always trying to make something of my own,” Woodruff, 16, said. “So I like – sort of what I did here – taking different things and putting them together to make one unified piece of art. I didn’t think that it would grow so popular, but I’m really glad that people enjoy it.”
