BURLINGTON, N.C. — A North Carolina woman has turned a tedious chore into an outlet for her artistic talents.

Her canvas is a dirty driveway and her tool is a pressure washer.

Dianna Wood wrote on her blog that her husband bought her a pressure washer for her birthday. While it may seem like an unusual gift, Wood said she had wanted one for years, as she found the work  therapeutic. But she quickly discovered that creating art out of grime with the power washer could cut down on the time it took to complete the chore.

Wood told WGHP that she's always dabbled in art. When using the pressure washer, she started with words, and then moved on to images, such as birds and flowers. She's gotten so good that some people thought she was using a stencil, Wood told WGHP.

The results are stunning. You can see more images of Wood's pressure washer art on her blog.
