2020 has been the year of universal lockdown. Across the globe, millions of people have had to limit their exposure to the outside world in order to help flatten the curve of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
For some people, quarantine has been a real struggle coping within the same four walls day in and day out. For others, it’s been a chance to finally get around to the creative projects that they’ve been meaning to get around to. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of quarantine coping, there is no denying that we’ve had some truly fantastic art pieces coming out of this pandemic.
And in Trussville, Alabama there was one photographer who went all out in terms of creativity. While in lockdown, Ron Burkett created an insanely beautiful wildlife mural that featured animals such as elk and wolves along with a backdrop of hills and large trees. How did he manage to do it? By using a power washer to “sculpt” the mural into his driveway!
The full appreciation for the artwork is something that was perfectly captured by Burkett’s drone, which was able to get a full aerial view. And the footage is just mind-blowing!
I doubt I’d even be able to sculpt a stick figure into my driveway with a power washer, let alone a whole nature scene.
Burkett’s inspiration for this actually came from his list of household chores that he wanted to catch up during lockdown. One of the items on his list? Pressure wash the driveway. We’re so glad he did.
