Accidental Art

I found this on my phone. I'm not sure what it is, but it's actually kind of awesome. Accidental Art.


We find beauty in the unplanned and unexpected. Contriving beauty is deceptively difficult. I'm a terrible amateur painter and struggle to write fiction. But we find beauty in patterns of light and shadow, clouds, rain, the surface of a pond. It's difficult to exceed the beauty found in the natural world, that formed from weather, the sun, vegetation, the fundamental laws of nature. I think contrived beauty is more difficult because to achieve it, you are struggling against natural forces. The artist is a salmon, swimming upstream against the current for hundreds of miles, to bring forth new life.
