Tres Cruces and Three Questions for Art Sunday

Tres Cruces
18 x 40 mixed media triptych on canvas
When I first conceived of this concept of a triptych I did not know all the questions that I would face. And I was not able to foresee some of the obstacles ahead. So far I think I have met them all rather well and have learned a lot. So today when I sat out to photograph the piece I wondered just how. Bigger than my easel. So I began with each piece individually. Each section is suppose to be a painting in its own right and not just part of the whole.

I think they do achieve that. But I would never want to sell them separately. So they must be priced as a group. But are all three pieces signed? Or just one?

Then came the problem of photographing them all together. I had to modify my easel with board and mat board to hold all three pieces on. Or I could join the three separate pictures together in Photoshop. But I don't know how to do that. Obviously it is time to get out the manual.
Or I could just throw myself to the mercy of my artistic and photographic friends and say, "Help!"


  1. So nice to see them separately and together! You succeeded!

  2. I'd like to have them on one wall individually in a row and all signed. I think they are wonderful.

  3. They look great separately and together, Jacqui. I have doen a triptych myself and have signed the central (larger) panel but not the other two side panels.
    However, on the side of each painting I have also signed and stipulated: "1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3".
    I stitched my panels together in Photoshop after taking individual pictures.


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
