The Impossible Indigo of a Penumbral Morning Sky in the Spring of 2006

The Impossible Indigo of a Penumbral Morning Sky in the Spring of 2006


Penumbral Morning Sky is an unnumbered artist proof and is my largest artwork to date.

Penumbral Morning Sky measures 85"x 105" and is composed of three panels, each constructed from thirteen layers of birch plywood.

With the purchase of this piece I will provide a custom cleat to mount the artwork. Due to its weight and size (~70 lbs. per panel), I can work directly with you or your installer to advise on the ideal mounting set up. We can also discuss me personally installing the artwork for a modest rate, primarily travel expense. If you are curious about logistics, please email me at to discuss further.

This piece is signed on the back and listed as an artist proof.

  • Penumbral Morning Sky will be shipped in a custom made wood crate. Freight shipping will be calculated and billed separately for each order, in addition to the base cost of this piece.

  • If you are in a reasonable radius of the California Bay Area, I will offer personal delivery and installation.

  • International buyers are responsible for any import taxes.

**Please note that I do everything in my power to ensure that the artwork will arrive immaculate and undamaged. If the mail carrier has a bad day, or you drop the piece after you open it, or for any other reason the work is damaged, I consider all my work to have a no-limit, free-repair warranty. If you ship any piece back to me with return postage, I will do everything I can to fix the damage.**

Also there is always natural variation between sheets of plywood, and sometimes different shipments of the same variety can have a wide range of colors. Photographing these pieces has also proved consistently difficult. I do not guarantee that the shipped to you will exactly match the photos of the prototype. 

I endeavor to make my work as robust as possible, but the designs are still delicate and need to be handled with care. As for most artwork, best practice is to keep these pieces out of prolonged direct sunlight or excessively humid environments.
