2007 Acrylic on canvas 24 x 35 inches“Trike and Barrel” is an original, signed acrylic painting on three canvases by artist Michael Arnold. This painting is from an assigned project in one of my art classes. The challenge was to create a unique multi-canvas construction. The subject is from actual props in the college’s art studio. By using a simple design and brushstroke it creates a unique work of art that is both interesting and dimensional. As you can see from the picture this artwork is created by attaching three separate canvases together, using different size canvases and overlapping them at varying points. I added an extra element to the painting by carrying the image over to the edges of the canvas.
