Have you ever noticed the growing trend for window cleaners to clean those said windows with a pole? Yep! Some of them do away with the window cleaning ladders and just use a special pole to clean the windows. But this as it turns out is quite a hot debate on the window cleaning scene. With ladders, without ladders. It seems that if you are not going up the ladder to clean the window then some widow cleaners say you can’t do a good enough job! We don’t really know which is best. But we would like to think that with a ladder is best. Most people don’t care and just want their windows cleaned a.s.a.p. Because after all it’s all about the dirty widows isn’t it?!?..
Today we are jetting off to visit Texas,USA to take a look at some dirty car windows. (it’s better than it sounds we promise!)
We used to think of dirty car windows as, well, dirty car windows. Now, thanks to Scott Wade, We think of them as blank canvases awaiting an artistic touch, masterpieces in the making. While most people would be content to etch a simple smiley face or “Wash me!” onto a grimy rear window, Wade paints painstakingly detailed drawings, including classics like da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus,” and Vermeer’s “Girl With a Pearl Earring.” He would most probably think a car sponge was evil!
The man known as the “Dirty Car Artist” lives in Wimberley, Texas–along a dirt road appropriately. But even though many cars in his midst are plenty dusty due to their surroundings, Wade starts each painting off by cleaning the windshield thoroughly. He then uses a blow dryer to apply an even coat of dust to his canvas before busting out his paintbrushes. Once completed, Wade notes, the images change over time, as more dust accumulates on them and dew streaks and dots them, creating a patina. When the rain comes, the gorgeous grime just washes away.Luckily, Wade has amassed a photo collection of his amazing art over the years, some of which you can see in the gallery above. You may never look at your filthy car the same way.
So do you think he washes his own windows with a pole or something like our window cleaning ladders?!?
