Below is a “finished” snow painting (see my previous post for some melting pictures). No painting is ever really finished, especially those whose aim is the metaphysics of processes. The materials I use to create paintings (paint, soil, water, snow, etc.) were once other things: there are all sorts of living organisms in the soil, the frozen snow was once liquid water in the Baltic Sea. The painting is part of a larger process. It is an image that solidifies processes, if only temporarily.
