Description

Acrylic paint on a canvas magnet with six rounded edges. A cream-colored snowman face with black eyes and downturned eyebrows, a long orange nose, and a black smile is painted at the bottom. The snowman wears a tall knit hat. The hat’s base is purple with white and black vertical stripes. Above the base, the hat’s first layer is light green with purple and red polka dots. The second layer of the hat is red with light green and purple stripes that are slightly diagonal toward the right. The third layer of the hat is light blue with white polka dots. The fourth layer of the hat is purple with black and white vertical stripes, matching the base. The fifth layer of the hat is light green with purple and red polka dots, matching the first layer. The sixth layer of the hat leans slightly toward the left and is red with light green and purple stripes that are slightly diagonal toward the right. The seventh layer of the hat is light blue with white polka dots, matching the third layer. The tip of the hat is purple with white and black stripes that are slightly diagonal toward the right. The tip has a pom-pom which consists of white, purple, and light green lines. The background of the canvas is red with paisley designs in each corner. There are white polka dots scattered on top of the paisley designs. Two white felt snowflake decals have been glued to the bottom left of the snowman’s hat and to the top right of the snowman’s hat. The paint is matte. The applied snowflakes are raised above the painted surface.
