Penultimate Penrose

6′ x 3′ acrylic on canvas

I love The penrose triangle. “Impossibility in its purest form”, as one mathematician called it.  I call it  the dance of emotion, body, mind. Three points that allow balance in a storm.  It is a discussion on 3’s for this painting and like all my pieces a reflection on me. This took a little over three years to paint. I’ll always be learning to paint, so time is relative on this one:)

These are images of the canvas as I built up the shapes and forms that would ultimately be the backdrop for the penrose.
