While most people’s interactions with a dirty car end at cleverly scrawled messages like “wash me,” one artist in San Marcos, Texas is elevating these dust-covered canvases to the level of high art. Scott Wade‘s dust paintings transform filthy rear windows into temporary masterpieces that only last as long nature or once neglectful owners allow. His works are culled from iconic images that span eras and styles, ranging from reproductions of the Mona Lisa to Dogs Playing Poker.

The video below shows Wade at work:
