Found Art Friday 266

Dear ones,
Welcome back to the Department of Homeland Inspiration, which is a state of mind. Today, we feature images from two artists whom have not yet met, but that seem to intersect along similar nodes and lines, both of whom have recently graced Art Ranger's inbox. Each of these artists is a unique three dimensionalist who has taken (weaving) to unexpected places. Art Ranger is awed by what other artists are magnetized by and how this steering by the eyes may affect their hand built objects.
 Amanda Salm
shared  "dragon fruit-crazy looking inside and out!"
its not just the seeds and the color, but those other fiber rhythms akin to swimming in the light, or a drawing by the artist
Also collected by Salm at Point Lobos.  We are happy with erosion as birdfoot sculptor of the ages
Horsehair being the primary material with which she creates, this one called "Sinks": Best go to Amanda Salm's website.
And featured before is Anne Mudge: this artist/friend/colleague also walks similar dog while parallel processing: we seem to be co-observers in different California eco-systems.
From Anne Mudge:  elegantly built and broken. It's what she sees and how it's framed folks.
Art Ranger admires these two artists' focus as laborious tasks grow into alternate life forms. 
Praying Mantis Egg Sac discovered by Mudge
Also appreciate seeing a dried used model as housing bulb
Digressions:  glimpse of hanging sculpture by Anne Mudge:
Indeed, digressions may actually be our stuff of life: (Yesterday while trying to whisk away books from the home to make room for new ones) this one grabbed us by the eye: 
"Yah - we know what you mean man!!!"
 Parting Words:  a series in which we make a copy of one page of each book we give a way now:
Despite all the baggage, Page 29 speaks to us:
"What is more natural than that we should persist in looking for happiness along the path on which we first encountered it? ..... We may go on from here to consider the interesting case in which happiness in life is predominantly sought in the enjoyment of beauty, wherever beauty presents itself to our senses and our judgement -the beauty of (human) forms and gestures, of natural objects and landscapes and of artistic and even scientific creations. This aesthetic attitude to the goal of life offers little protection against the threat of suffering, but it can compensate for a great deal" Okay dawg, we are committed to this work, tis our service, our wheelhouse, our generator.  Hence highlighting the two artists featured above. And seeking to attend to the art (beauty? - not exactly) in everyday life "The enjoyment of beauty has a particular intoxicating quality of feeling.  Beauty has no obvious use; nor is there any clear cultural necessity for it.  Yet civilization could not do without it...."
Please share your revelations and beauties with us: subject FAF (for Found Art Friday):, and we will try not to let where did it go? happen.
