These Unique Oil Paintings by Mel Davis are Made of Discarded Materials

These Found Wood Paintings by Mel Davis are comprised of a variety of randomly found wood pieces, which have been detailed with a array of oil paints to form a visually simplistic yet engaging piece of artwork.

Davis uses found pieces of wood as a base for her paintings, each piece of wood is different in size and texture. Davis finds these rugged pieces of discarded wood and carves, and reshapes and molds them into visually striking forms.

The ability of Davis to transform these pieces of trash and discarded material into wonderfully creative and thought-provoking pieces of artwork is a testament to her ability to look beyond first impressions and appearances, and create something beautiful from something ordinary.
