Menolusion - is it or isn't it?

I went away for a few days but before going, I completed the tryptich which restarted my whole art-muse thing again. Wasn't quite sure whether it was worth trimming and fixing - but on return from the mini trip, it hit the eye pleasantly enough, so intend to hang it on my wall.

I have titled it "Fair, Foul, Fine - Umbrella Title 'West Coast Weather'".

Strictly speaking, a tryptich would be three separate panels, but in more ancient times, they were often hinged, so that the two side-panels could protect the main panel in case of attack or other such emergency. No fear of that here, I trust. I found that when I placed the panels immediately adjacent they gave an illuminated window effect, so trimmed to enhance the appearance.  A fair bit of glue and several nails were involved.

Am reasonably pleased with this first foray into painting after so many years. The experimentation with texture and fabric and applications paid off, I think. Not that I would do too much of it.

As I schedule this post, the view from the Hutch's window is pretty much the centre panel...
