ash to ash ~ dust to dust

Texas “dirty car artist” Scott Wade (pictured here recreating Dutch master, Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”) has found an artistic use for the ever present dust collecting on his car. He has recieved a good bit of notoriety for his creations which wash away with tomorrows rain.
“I don’t do this to try and create immortal works of art” says Wade. “We aren’t going to be around forever, and nothing we do is going to last forever as much as we’d like it to. We need to learn to let go of that I think, and just enjoy what’s here.”
When asked which of his works is his favorite, Wade replies “the next one!”
Later this year, Scott will be creating a special piece for the Atlanta Arts Festival. Correction: Scott Wade created a special piece for the Atlanta Arts Festival in 2008.
