Triptych – Acrylic on canvas 30″ x 88″
Lipstick Palm is also called Sealing Wax and it’s scientific name is Cyrtostachys Lakka. It’s origin was Malaysia, Indonesia and Borneo. It is cold sensitive, like me, and has to be kept above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ahh, commissions. Sometimes an artist thinks she knows what the commissioner wants and when it is finished it can be totally different than the commissioner had envisioned! As was in this triptych. It now has a happy home in New Zealand. The commissioner had wanted a light background. Later, I took one of the panels and added a darker background and used it for our Christmas cards.
