Kaleidoscope Dragonflies Diptych On Gallery Canvas

The latest painting to sprout wings and fly out of my sunroom studio is called "Kaleidoscope Dragonflies". When I envisioned working on this painting, I wanted to create a piece of art that was brimming with lots of colors, which lead me to start thinking about all the colors and shapes you would see if you looked through a kaleidoscope. As you turn it in your hands, the images you see in the kaleidoscope keep continuously changing. That was the inspiration for this latest painting.



Each panel is painted in acrylics on 1 1/2" deep gallery wrap canvas. Each piece measures 18" h x 6" w. Although they are displayed as a diptych, they can also stand alone as the design wraps around the sides of each canvas.






The total measurements for the display I have shown are: 24" h x 14 1/2" w. They could be displayed any way the heart desires though....it is up to the person hanging this set, how they wish to arrange them.










This painting is available at Celebrations Gallery.... www.artfulcreations.etsy.com . I hope everybody has a wonderful week that is full of beautiful, ever changing colors.

Hi Ruth,
What a gorgeous piece this is and really does reflect a kaleidoscope style and feel. You captured it perfectly. Love the colors.
Glad your weather is pretty today. We are raining like crazy here and cooler too. No tornadoes predicted today so we are happy for that. Everything is gorgeous and green in the garden now from the rains. So all good and we need the rain anyway.

Have a great May Day and good week ahead.
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
