I was over ambitious while designing and making this triptych. The original idea came together quickly but the assembly took about two weeks. My work space is really too small for a piece of this size and at least twice I had to disassemble and store it away while entertaining. The gluing took longer than I expected and I even had my friend Kathy come by one day to assist.
I'm happy with the way the whole thing fell together. The varying types of marks work with each other and the overall affect is near to what I had hoped; an overlap of Japanese Screens and my panoramic photos from the Magic Hedge. It is large, each panel is 48 x 36 inches and I'm planning on framing them separately but present them as a piece.
