“My Letter”-Introduction, Body, Conclusion: Abstract Triptych Series (Week 46)

Check Out my 2016 Painting and Post Goals Story behind the Paintings: One definition of “triptych” is a picture (such as a painting) that has three panels placed next to each other. “Abstract” is existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.
