Dan Sharp
Oil on shaped wood panel
24 x 18 in. / 61 x 45.7 cm
"I titled the work Windward because the curving shape on the left billows like a sail on a boat and seems airy. Then the thick wave of grey paint on the right flows like a wave of water or the wake of a boat. The title came after the painting was done."

Definition:  windward, noun. -the side or direction from which the wind is blowing.

"It is a painting that flows without straight lines, a balance of curves, an image of air, wind and water. The painting is in another way a kind of a figure of a parentheses. As such, it is both a digression and a container, like a boat and like the trace of a boat."
- D. Sharp
