Field Study: The Open Sea, 12 x 16

When Melville and others refer to the sea as a desert, I always find
the notion incongruous, because where I live the desert is
conspicuously short of water. Yet out beyond sight of land the sea is
vast and deserted with endless undulating swells, each different and
yet the same. If one looks at it closely, however, soon the
progression of color from the foreground to the horizon can be
discerned and the sky's shading turns warm gray at the horizon. 1986
