“The House That Jack Built” Week Two

The House That Jack Built First corner

“The House That Jack Built”

First Corner-Pen & Ink Image


I start this post with a deep breath. I don’t how this project is going to unfold, so there is a touch of apprehension.

The above Pen & Ink worksheet is the first of the four corners open for suggestions of items to be included in the final painting. Anyone new to the “The House That Jack Built” please scroll back to last Monday’s Post for a description of this current project.


The guidelines for the “House That Jack Built” project:

If you please, just one suggestion per person for each corner area, when posted.

There are only so many things/items that can be selected for inclusion to create an overall balanced final composition, and suggestions will come from different sources (Facebook, WordPress Blog, Google Blog, LinkedIn, etc.), so take no offense if yours is not chosen.


At this first corner, requesting suggestions of:

Things you see on/around a front door.

Things you see on or around a porch.

Things you see under a porch.

Things you would see in a foyer.


There is no compensation for suggestions used, but I will keep tab of the names offering suggestions directly to my post or to the “Shared” posts from wonderfully appreciated friends. At the end of this project I will “pull a name out of the hat” and send that person a signed, first print of the final painting.


The posting schedule for the project is, as laid out:

Today, June 23; Post the first of four corners, door area being the first, and I will ask for suggestions of items to be added for that area.

Monday, June 30; An intermission, (will post a past art image).

Monday, July 7; Repost the first corner with added items.

Monday, July 14; Post the second corner for suggestions of that area

Continue the sequence, and end the project with the posting of the completed painting.

  1. Hi Craig, This is going to be so much fun! Since I am an animal person, I could see a fat possum living under the porch.

    Sending good thoughts and smiles for you new project! Cecilia
