Piece description from the artist

East: the direction by which I've always oriented myself in space. Easterly was the direction I faced observing sunrises, incoming tides and the moonglade. Easterly was the direction we sailed until we were over the horizon and land was out of sight. Easterly names a vector. We're moving with direction and magnitude in relation to everything else. Easterly signifies a purpose. This large contemporary painting is in homage to those personal experiences and to the senses of direction and larger purpose we all hold. The blues, blacks, grays and whites recall the qualities of the ocean and its coolness. Yellows, pinks and oranges recall the distant coastline and the warmth of land and sunlight. All of the contrasts are held in a dynamic balance by the horizontal banding. Easterly: straight out from shore, repeatedly crossing an ever-receding horizon, out of sight of land, moving with great purpose.

Easterly is beautifully painted in rich colors with great attention to structuring the complex color rhythms. For my collectors it will make a strong aesthetic statement in a large space. No doubt that it will also start the conversation about direction and purpose we all need.

Easterly ships directly from my studio, ready to hang, no frame required. It is signed on the reverse side.
