Bringing The Gang Together For The First Time

 So for most of this year, I have been creating several canvases with the purpose/hope/expectation of bringing some of them together to create diptychs, triptychs, or polyptychs.  In addition to building my imagery up layer by layer, this allows me to expand outwards.

I have, on occasion, brought a few of the canvases together to see how they looked/interacted with each other, but usually one or more of the canvases has wet paint, is in another part of the studio, or for some other reason is just tough-enough to bring together that I haven't done it often.

So the other day I had Playtime,...

Big Cheese Monkey Nuts,...



...and Fishy all hanging around at the same place at the same time.

So I brought them all together to see how they interacted with each other.  Here are the results.

Nothing is permanent at this point, but I am encouraged with how well these came together/visually interacted with each other.


  1. How big are these works? When you put them together does it take up a whole studio wall?
    I think the three smaller ones on the right make a nice trio....

    1. The smaller three panels are each 24"x 24". The larger panels are 34" x 34".
