Found Art

Do you like seeing beauty in everyday things? Have you seen things wherever you go that look like art?

I was walking along the museums in DC last Sunday when I saw this on the sidewalk. Probably just some dried juice or soda but it made a pretty pattern.

This is such a great idea. I like to call this the “American Beauty Effect” after that scene when Wes Bentley’s character blisses out over a plastic bag in the wind.

Water is one of the best places to look for this kind of naturally-occuring art. I found these air bubbles trapped in the slime at the bottom of a water mirror and found them hypnotic. They reminded me of masago, or frog eggs.
