My inspiration for this crimson, gold, and blue oil painting on panel came from an evening spent watching the sun set over the New York City harbor. It belongs to a series of other artwork around perhaps my favorite motif: light on water.
The painting is presented in a black wooden shadowbox frame, which was made by hand here in the studio. Outside dimensions with the frame are 8.75 by 20 inches.
Quay was part of my solo exhibition Penumbra at Laura Korman Gallery in Los Angeles. The Santa Monica Mirror illustrated the painting in their coverage of that exhibit.
