Tetraptych or Quadtych

I’ll confess I had to look this one up.  I had absolutely no idea what you call a piece of artwork that is made up of four pieces which together make one whole. I really am someone who loves words, but this is one I never encountered before.   I guess you can use either term tetraptych or quadtych and it’s considered correct, and if I could pronounce either one I’d choose. 🙂 The piece itself has no title yet, as it is too new off the easel for me to be sure.  I love that the four pieces can be rearranged any way you want and it still makes a pond, but this particular arrangement is my particular favorite.  Each piece is an 8″ square on gallery wrap canvas.   Hope you like it.
