Rehearsal - Triptych


16 x 28 oil on three panels

I am so excited about this painting. I've wanted to do a multi panel painting for a long time, but didn't know what subject. The dancers just seemed so right. The only trouble I see now is that the woman's hand on the left panel lines up with the window frame in the center panel. That might be acceptable once its framed and less noticeable. It might even be good. The framing is the tricky part.

I am talking with Deborah Paris at Mountains Edge Frames about framing it. They have some beautiful mouldings and hopefully they can build me something.

As a note to those in Fort Wayne, Indiana area, Castle Gallery is hosting its Holiday Show with a reception featuring several of the galleries artists. I regret I could not be there, because they have really nice parties and its such a lovely gallery. Go and check it out tonight from 5-10 pm.

I actually like that continuity of the hand leading into the line of the center painting.

This painting is 100 percent beautiful! I love the brushwork and the poses of the ballerinas. Excellent and wonderful!! I too also love the commentary along with the artwork.

Robin, Congratulations on a remarkable composition. It was choreographed flawlessly. You should take a very long deep bow because we are all continuing to applaud. Bravo!

What a great use of the canvas by having the large in the middle and smaller on the sides. Not only are the paintings exceptional but the way your eye moves across each painting is exciting.

Lovely Painting. The blues remind me of Alaska winter skies . . .

Beautiful figure art! I think the hand leading into the window frame looks quite cool.....like a 'link' to the middle panel as it were.

I would be excited too! This sort of painting makes a person love the paint as much as the composition of the painting. Sooo inspiring...
