The ‘Catch of the Day’

“Catch of the Day” 33×10 Acrylic on canvas, tryptic in acrylic painted wood frame

Sometimes I paint something I really like. This is one of those. I often mentioned that I get a lot of my frames at estate sales. This one hadn’t sold and they were tossing it. Debbie to the rescue!

I brought it home and probably looked at it for a month before deciding what I would do with it. It was likely from the 1950’s and it’s a heavy solid wood black frame. The edges are slightly scalloped and the indentations give it a 3D effect. I love doing tryptics, three separate paintings with a continuous flow. I thought that with a few modifications, it would be the perfect frame. First, it was meant to hang vertically. That didn’t work for me, so I removed the brass hanger and changed it to a horizontal plane. Then I bought three, 4×6 canvases. I thought it cried for a fish and viola! The project was finished.

Let it be your, ‘Catch of the Day’!
