Natural Phenomena

Natural Phenomena is a series of oil paintings made from 2005 to 2012. All are oil and charcoal and mixed media on canvas.

“By ‘natural’ I mean events fomented by ‘the forces of nature,’ the combined and cumulative effects of physics and biology on the Earth. By ‘phenomena’ I mean the unimaginable range of ongoing interactions of the elements of the cosmos and this world, both awesome and mundane, powerful and subtle, both experienced by us and unknown to us.” WL

“I don’t paint things, I only paint the difference between things.”  —Henri Matisse
