Trinary Star Accretion

In keeping with the discussions about binary stars and mass accretion, I submit a painting I did in 2001 of the accretion process in a triple star system consisting of one each of red and blue-white giant stars and a compressed object (black hole). The actual dynamics of the system would depend at least in part on the relative masses of each of the components. Acrylic on masonite and 24″x32″.
