Three Flower Paintings on Small Canvas – a Triptych
What’s a triptych ? Basically , it’s a group of three paintings shown together and sharing aspects of subject matter , colour or style – or all three ! In fact , just like these three flower paintings. Originally, I think it described three paintings usually above or on the altar in churches. Actually , it’s a really popular way of presenting artwork at the moment in galleries . And some artists are very creative in the way the pieces are linked together .
Anyway , this is my version of a triptych disguised as floral art. In fact , I had to come up with something for an art group I belong to and I was a bit stuck. Then I remembered that I had decided to paint a series of flower paintings in acrylic on small canvases a while ago . However, life got in the way and I had only completed two, Sunflower and Oriental Poppy.
So , I decided to paint one more – for the art group theme , a triptych of flowers. That is , three flower paintings. This is Cone Flowers.
Easy ! One triptych delivered .
Flowers from My Gallery
I must just mention that I have entered ‘Bluebells’ ( and two other paintings) for an open call for an exhibition. Luckily , Bluebells was accepted ( hurray ! ) .And to my delight, chosen for the publicity image – two reasons to be cheerful, I think !
I must admit , I do love painting flowers. And , if you would like to see more , there’s loads more in my Gallery – ‘Still Life and Flowers’ here
So, to finish up with, here’s my favourite – going to a new home when my solo exhibition finishes today ( the image at the bottom of the page )
Well, there are all kinds of floral art – on canvas, on paper , in vases , in a landscape , as a triptych or stand alone .And , I wonder which kind you like best ? Or , do you like them all , like me .

Nice paintings! I did not see the like button unless you intentionally do not want it.
Thanks very much, Inese .I’m really glad you told me about the like button. Hopefully it should be there now. I’m trying hard to get this website the way I need it to be. But I’ve still got such a lot to learn.
I love to paint flowers too, and haven’t ever done a triptych, I must try this! I love the impact of the big blooms, very cool!
Thanks very much, Jenna . I like the way you can paint the shape going over the edges . But I forgot to mention that the canvases are only 8 inches square. I’d really love to paint a floral composition on a large canvas next.
