A phenomenon is an object of a person's perception; the mind or senses take notice. It is merely an experience. Beauty mysteriously enables us to engage in phenomena naturally, yet, such a natural state throws us into existential conundrums. These works are objects of phenomena. An experience that is of delight and stillness, but are uncertain, wrestling, and sometimes convicting.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
