A stone and mortar walkway in front of a Sebastopol apartment building caught my eye for its abstract rhythm. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Window Smear and Reflection (October 27, 2015)

An interesting smear on a window caught my eye. A reflection made it hard to photograph. Together the smear on the glass and the image reflected there made a composition that looked like art to me. Serendipitous Art.

Walking in Petaluma recently I entered an alley with paint-splashed walls partly painted over with new paint. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Sidewalk Markings (September 30, 2015)

Striping in various thicknesses on a stretch of roadway (this a crosswalk, I think) looked very much like art to me--found art, unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Painted Bench (September 11, 2015)

I liked the color of a bench in front of a Mexican restaurant in Healdsburg, and the vaguely star-shaped white patch I found on it. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Wiped Surface With Red Dot (July 23, 2015)

Another abstract composition the unintended result of other activity. I thought the traces left behind on this wiped metal surface looked like art. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Tape and Cleaned Graffiti (June 15, 2015)

Sometimes the abstract beauty of human activity inadvertently recorded is quietly breathtaking. Tape on a metal electrical box and swirls where graffiti have been erased looked like art to me. Unintended art. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Sonoma Gallery Floor II (July 10, 2015)

Another view of the floor of a gallery in Sonoma. This one looks like an antique screen covered in gold leaf--but it's not. Having just seen the big Turner exhibit at the De Young Museum--this looks like a Turner. Indistinct and diffusely luminous.

As so often happens, the floor of an exhibition space caught my eye recently. This is a view of a section of the floor in the main exhibition space at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, in Sonoma. Serendipitous Art. Look down for art.
