Dianna Wood, a North Carolina resident, was given a power washer for her birthday this year, something she had wanted for years. Dianna has long retained a variety of artistic pastimes on the side, despite not being a skilled artist. Dianna didn’t take long after getting the power washer to go from washing fences and brickwork to something a little more creative.
Dianna was ready to clean the driveway when inspiration struck. “When I learned how long it would take (we have a long, muddy driveway), I decided to make it into an art project,” Dianna says. She began with inscribing words, then progressed to larger, more complex topics such as owls, birds, butterflies, and flowers after finding the results intriguing. She explains the procedure on her blog: “I use a power washer to ‘clean’ the photographs.” I use the power washer wand like a huge spray can (freehand—no stencils). To produce different gradations, I raise and lower the wand’s tip. It cleans the deep-down filth on the cement using water pressure, leaving an impression of clean cement.”
Dianna’s creative cleaning frenzy drew a lot of attention quickly, and before she knew it, her magnificent driveway art had gone viral. Dianna expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to communicate with new people through her work in her blog, despite the fact that she never sought popularity in her artistic endeavors.
