The One with Diamond Paintings by Ron van der Ende

I subscribe to a blog called Artist A Day and every now and again I'm particularly drawn to one of the featured artists. Like Ron van der Ende for example. He's a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. These two pieces are my favorite:
Photobucket
Ron van der Ende: Flawless 2007
Bas-relief in reclaimed timbers (private collection den Haag, NL)
Photobucket
Ron van der Ende: Taylor-Burton 2009
bas-relief in salvaged wood 165 x 95 x 11cm

They really look like diamonds! It's hard to believe they're actually painted pieces of wood. See more of his work on his website.
