This painting that I call THE TRIPTYCH is done in acrylic paints on birch plywood. I like to paint on wood after I have fashioned something with the wood. Last year I built a case with 2 doors and called it THE ALTARPIECE. I am going to do another altarpiece this year, but on a much smaller scale. I am still debating with myself about the shape as I want this little piece, though small in size, to have some stature. The stature part falls on me the craftsman building the case and the 2 doors. And, then painting something scaled to the smaller overall size of the piece. This time I think I will need to make a drawing, the actual size, so that I get the angle cuts right.
THE TRIPTYCH by F.D. Zigler, Great American Artist, 2012.
Retired after working with investment securities and portfolios for over 35 years. My interest in politics, history and the economy will provide a jump off for moneythoughts. From time to time I will post pieces of my artwork. I call my artwork political satire and I welcome your comments. I am available to speak or write economic commentary for money managers, brokerage firms or anyone else that thinks my ideas offer something worth while.
