For those folks fluent in creating multi-panel art works ( polyptychs ) this is probably lower than redundant or basic, lol!
But for me, neophyte newbie never-done polyptychs before, it’s a brave new world!
With “brave” being more than just a play on words.
Depending on which side by side panels you glance at, top before before I painted a change, and below being after, you can count at least 4-5 transition edges —
Using the after-changes piece, I’ve notated ( see below ) 4 areas of transition.
Now this is more than my usual # of edge transitions, it’s just this particular work that I happen to have so many, and probably’s what made me realize how many options I have, and evidently choose to vary! 😊
The #2 transition above is what got my going becoming more conscious ’bout what I was, depending on how you look at, either winging my transitions, or intuitively diversifying them, or even just connecting the two modes without thinking much about it til now.
I just couldn’t let the original gap at the second transition stay that way, so I bridged it.
Obviously I bridged transitions 1, 3 and 4 too, but more fluidly. In the moment, only becoming aware-aware of them by spending time studying what & how to deal with the 2nd transition.
There is, I think, value in all the transitions I used – as long as it works for the artist.
We can’t really guess beyond a certain point what the public will like.
Jump-transitions ( #2 ), smooth pass throughs ( #4 ), sketchy cross-overs ( #3 ), and juxtaposed patterns ( #1 ) – using descriptive names I made up – they all create transitions. And who knows how many other kinds there are! Only spending time creating polyptychs will provide part of the answer to that, lol!
I’m blasting along best I can before several time periods I know I’ll be less able to produce as fully as I can right now. And I will eventually catch up and post the various experiments and fun stuff I’ve been able to concentrate on lately 🙏
Stay well everyone! Be as creative as you’re able, as often as you can wrangle 💕

- May 16, 2022 – New Diptych : “Freedom” Almost Finished, Panels Need Signing ( front & back )And what I’ve come across figuring out how to make prints of this that folks can work with, ie, close to or within standard size dimensions, was how to get a 22×28 image convert into – in 2 examples – an 8×10 or 12×18, and I came up with this as a starting prototype….
- May 15, 2022 – My Most Viewed Image this Past Week @FineArtAmerica, “Spring Rising”I’d done a lot of deep or darker night-like paintings for a bit, so it felt pretty nice to lighten up my palette for awhile. Working back & forth, from the two approaches – playing the potential good from both approaches seems to suit my Libra middle, lol!
- May 14, 2022 – My 1st Classical Stretch Workout with Miranda Esmonde-White ( via YouTube ) in Many Months!Though similar to SilverSneakers’ classes, Miranda’s classes focus largely on making the fascia network in our bodies more fluid. Some movements are very similar, but more extended, dance-like, reflecting Miranda’s ballerina and dance background!
- May 13, 2022 – “Angel” in AVAA’s 1st Austin Art Space Gallery and Studio Group Show in a Long Time!Just a very quick post to announce that my 18×24 inch acrylic on stretched canvas, Angel – has been accepted into Austin Visual Arts Association’s ( AVAA) 1st group show since ( I believe ) the pandemic. Definitely been a long time coming and feels great to be able to be showing with this long time Austin art association again! 😊
- May 12, 2022 – Updated My #Twitter Header Image and Pinned TweetThough Twitter’s future is up in the air, or ether, or virtual landscape; and my own “footprint” there and social media in general is micro-whatever, lol! — it’s still my micro existence, and I want to care for it best I can 😊
- May 11, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Joan Mitchell, “I carry my landscapes around with me” – #Polyptychs…my reading of Joan Mitchell’s work – while often including much of that same connection, speaks more directly to me about the impact of the canvas before me in that process. Especially most specifically in regard to Joan’s work with multi-panel / multi-canvas works of art – ie, polyptychs!
- May 10, 2022 – BW Impressionist Abstract 1, Completed!A few posts back, about a new diptych in-progress, Freedom, in the 2nd 1/2 of the post, I mentioned having another in-progress work, BW Impressionist Abstract 1, that the 9 year old ( our youngest grandchild ) said he really liked, but wanted more “gold” in it, and pointed out where & how much more gold paint 😊 So I took him at his word & did the changes –
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
