Before I change my blog posting pace for 2-3 days with health & other related issues, I wanted to follow-up yesterdays Part 1 in my current art blog post series – Experimenting With Polyptychs.
Trying out painting the multi-panel work with the edges of the canvases pressed together, or as much as’s possible with separate stretched canvases, I took the above shot of a “mostly” completed new work, God and Yellow Twilight 😊
The left side seam is carefully – very carefully – split via my using a new long palette knife blade, while the right side seam is still intact between the 2 panels.
With my single panel work, splitting a swoop of pigment or accidentally created shape resembling a bird or person, is not a concern. Now, here and there, are potential interesting shapes one could “see” as a bird or such. And some of them, like the bird like shape middle right circled below, will be sliced through —
Whether I’ll end up preferring single full canvas works, or multi-panel polyptychs, I honestly don’t know right now. My guess is, I’m gonna like keeping on doing both 😊 But we won’t know that til sometime in the near to far future ☺️
Stay well everyone! There’s all kinds of love for all kinds of people, things and things to do – and it’s usually a good thing to get to know them all 💕

- 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! 😊
