All righty - the new big original - "Owl Butterfly Triptych" is the title - this truly is another masterpiece! One of the most impressive collaborations between me & my husband Matt so far! For those art history buffs, this is a true FOLDING TRIPTYCH - done in the medieval altarpiece style. In the past, many churches would have folding altarpieces that they would unfold on Sundays or on holidays to display the painted interior. This is one done in high Gothic style - a solid poplar wood triptych (three paneled painting) first cut & carved by my lovely husband Matt - and then finished by me in an antiqued gold leaf finish. It is THREE original paintings in one - it features a beautiful fairy creature in the central panel surrounded by beautiful butterflies and autumn leaves. This piece is inspired by the butterflies of the Caligo genus, which through mimicry camouflage themselves with an owl-like pattern (down to the eyes!) on their wings. On the left panel there is a lovely hoot owl, and on the right panel there is a caligo butterfly with some autumn leaves. A the top of the central panel, forming a sort of "window" I have painted the sky with butterflies trailing off into the distance! And yes indeed - it has hinges and folds closed - it is way cool. We're very proud of this one! A good size - 21" high and about 14.5" wide when extended. One of my best paintings to date - please do check it out! All ready to hang - this can truly make your house look like a Gothic Cathedral or a fine art museum! Original acrylic painting on solid poplar wood with gold leaf and metal hinges. Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! She's up for just ONE PENNY on eBay for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Monday, October 26th at 5:00PM Central Time, and you can see her below:
