This is an open edition serigraph entitled Moby Dick, that features a sperm whale and a quote from Herman Melville's classic book. The quote reads as follows:
~ Forehead to forehead I meet thee, this third time, Moby Dick! On deck there!- brace sharper up; crowd her into the wind's eye. He's too far off to lower yet, Mr. Starbuck. The sails shake! Stand over that helmsman with a top-maul! So, so; he travels fast, and I must down. But let me have one more good round look aloft here at the sea; there's time for that. An old, old sight, and yet somehow so young; aye, and not changed a wink since I first saw it, a boy, from the sand-hills of Nantucket! The same- the same!- the same to Noah as to me. There's a soft shower to leeward. Such lovely leewardings! They must lead somewhere ~

Years ago I took several en plein air classes, taught by Richard Grosvenor, at the Coleman Center in Newport, RI.
My painting of Second Beach, showing Hanging Rock, was painted on a fine day with the sun softly lighting up the long swooping beach to Sachuest Point.
This is a reproduction of my original oil painting. The image area is 17" wide x 5 3/8" high, with the paper measuring 19" wide x 7.5" high. Printed with archival ink on Epson UltraSmooth™ Fine Art Paper.
