This diptych (2 panels) was made as a monoprint (unique print) - that is the impressions were made by rubbing the canvas board on piles of different colored paints which is why there are such interesting textures in the paint. This is my favorite composition; however, the two panels can be arranged any way that one likes, including being hung as two separate pieces.
