Serendipitous Art: Mail Slot (August 18, 2015)

The mail slot in the door of a local gallery—JaM Jar, on South A St. in Santa Rosa—looked like art to me. Unintended art, serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Green Wall and Reflections

A green wall in a parking lot with reflections from the bumper of a car parked near it looked like art to me. Serendipitous 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: Bench Light, Bench Shadow (July 19, 2015)

In Petaluma recently I saw this pattern of blue light and shadows on the ground made by a bench in front of a shop window. 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.

Serendipitous Art: Sonoma Gallery Floor (July 5, 2015)

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.

Serendipitous Art: Reinforced Brick Wall (July 1, 2015)

An old brick wall in Sonoma, California, reinforced from the inside against earthquakes, looked like art to me. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Museum Shadow (June 28, 2015)

Shadows in a stairwell at the Aviation Museum at San Francisco International Airport looked like art to me. Serendipitous art, unintended art, found art.

Serendipitous Art: Tape on Paint (June 9, 2015)

A piece of tape on a graffiti and paint-covered metal surface--or the adhesive remaining where a piece of tape once was. Unintended art.

Serendipitous Art: Found Collage (June 4, 2015)

Sometimes, between photographing something of interest and posting it here, I forget where it was I made the photograph, what it was that I photographed--an indicator of how abstract these bits of serendipitous art can be. Where was this? What is it? I'm not entirely sure, but I think it was a "found collage"--a window plastered over with stickers and painted. In any case, it looked like art to me.

Serendipitous Art: Abstraction on White Ground (May 31, 2015)

I saw this composition on the side of a metal box vending something near the Healdsburg Plaza. Unintended modern abstraction. Serendipitous art.

Serendipitous Art: Memorial Girder (April 24, 2015)

I rarely go to Napa but had business there yesterday. Walking around the town a bit, I came across a memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks. I hadn't know it was there. Poignant, for obvious reasons, but the girders from the destroyed buildings were rather beautiful. Unintended art. Serendipitous art.
