“The House That Jack Built”-Week Six

Four Watching

“The House That Jack Built”

Week Six-Intermission


A “Thank You” to all those that submitted suggestions of items to be included in the “Second corner” of “The House That Jack Built”.

As I have listed in the schedule, I am posting a past Art image, as an Intermission (I have chocolate chips cookies with a cold glass of milk sitting nearby) while I am selecting items to be used and applying them to the Second Corner Pen & Ink drawing.


The above Oil Painting is entitled “Four Watching”

As I started to learn how to work with Oil paints a few years ago, I contemplated over a few of my earlier Watercolor and Color Pencil drawings and how they would lend themselves as an Oil painting. This 2012 Oil painting is the reworking of a Color pencil drawing I completed in 2006.

Never did figure out what they were watching at the time, but in lieu of this project, they decided to take a moment and watch the ongoing construction of the house. Roy, the gentleman to the left, is contemplating his suggestion for the Third corner.


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

Today,  Monday, July 21; An intermission, (post a past art image).

Monday, July 28; Repost the Second corner with added items.

Monday, August 4; Post the Third corner for suggestions of that area.

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

  1. I think the four men are watching you and wondering where are their milk and cookies. Lee
