Serendipitous Art: Marker Test (December 15, 2014)

The side panel of a marker display in one of the art supply stores in Santa Rosa caught my eye. People have used it to test the markers. Looked like art to me. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Mystery Photo

Here's another one of those images that I sometimes find on my phone, having lost track of where I took the photograph or even what the photograph depicts. Just an intriguing surface I came upon, somewhere. A little bit of mysterious, unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Parking Garage Spots (November 28, 2014)

The textured floor of a parking garage. An unlikely place to find something that seems so decorative. Everyone likes polka dots, right? Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Screen Door Scribbles in Sonoma (November 19, 2014)

This door in the town of Sonoma fascinates me. It's a punched metal screen that's been burnished and, apparently, spray-painted over, but the patterns change depending on light and the angle of view. I've photographed it before. serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Orange Spray Paint Oval (November 16, 2014)

This orange oval spray painted on a wall seemed to nicely balance the line and dots below it formed by seams and hardware. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Corrugated Metal (November 3, 2014)

I'm not sure what's going on here. A layer of rust or some other coating on a sheet of corrugated metal has been etched away to leave behind these beautiful patterns. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Shadow on Galvanized Metal Sheet (October 29, 2014)

Light falling on a sheet of galvanized metal in a local gallery, blocked by a pair of rounded forms created this "drop" of light. Looked like art to me. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Loading Dock, Graton (October 9, 2014)

I found this paint-smear composition on a loading dock in Graton, CA. The old warehouse building is now used as artist's studios. It looks like someone was working here.... Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Healdsburg Gallery Floor (September 24, 2014)

I enjoyed visiting one of Healdsburg's many art galleries recently. The floor was one of those floors with a past. Looking down was almost as much fun as looking at the intentional art on display.

Serendipitous Art: A Mystery (September 10, 2014)

Going through some old photos from a trip to Sacramento I found a few that puzzle me. I don't know what this is that I photographed, but it looked like art to me at the time. Still does. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Pebbles in Concrete (September 5, 2014)

Concrete with stones set into it. The surface has been cut away to expose the stones in cross section. Found art, unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Passdoor Floor

On a recent visit to The Barlow, the new shopping area at the eastern edge of Sebastopol, I stopped in at the Passdoor, a gallery and interior shop with interesting wares and an interesting floor--a leftover from the place's former life as a warehouse. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Float-decorated House (August 27, 2014)

On a drive north to Mendocino recently I passed a house on Highway 1 festooned with old floats and other nautical gear. Perhaps this is not entirely unintentional art, but it caught my eye.

Serendipitous Art: Mendocino Car Paint (August 21, 2014)

I saw this scene in Mendocino on a recent trip up the coast to visit the place. Another interesting composition resulting from a deteriorating car paint job. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Fallen Sign at the Airport (August 12, 2014)

I recently found myself at the outdoor international arrivals waiting area at San Jose Airport. On a concrete wall I found this intriguing pattern. After some thought, I decided there was probably a sign here that has fallen down or been removed. The pattern of squiggles was probably made by the adhesive that once held it up. Unintended art.
