Default Dirty car art

Got this in an e-mail, and saw it on the news, last week, but didn't know he had a site

http://www.dirtycarart.com/



Quote:
you know that Texas is in a drought when you can come up with this
type of art using your car window as the medium......

When the dust gets thick on the back window of his Mini Cooper,

Scott Wade uses it as a canvas to create temporary works of art. Among
his creations was a copy of C.M. Coolidge'* 'A Friend in Need,' better
known as dogs playing poker.


Wade used his finger and other implements to etch this homage
to Vincent Van Gogh'* 'Starry Night' and Leonardo da Vinci'* 'Mona Lisa.'

Wade lives off the unpaved Roadrunner Road north o f San Marcos,
which dusts the back windows of his car and gives him the canvases to
create his own works of art.

A portrait of Kinky Friedman on the back of the Mazda driven by

Wade'* wife, Robin Wood, was featured on the gubernatorial candidate'*
Web site.

A collage of wildlife decorates the Mini Cooper'* window.

Wade'* creations attract admirers wherever he goes.

Who needs a frost-covered window when you've got road dust to
create a Christmas scene?

A gimme-capped John Kelso was the subject of one window
portrait.

Besides his finger, Wade uses traditional art tools, such as
paintbrushes, and unconventional ones, like a chewed Popsicle stick, to
make his drawings.

Wade takes pride in his creations, but he knows that with one
good shower, his work will just wash away.

You've got to admit that will last longer than an ice sculpure.
