“The House That Jack Built”-Week 17

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 17-“Jack”


All the “buzz about town and 3/4’s of the country” (o.k., make that 5/8’s) has been about the items inserted into “The House That Jack Built” painting.

It is only fair that I take an opportunity to introduce “Jack”. This forgotten center section of the painting is the area that was the original “doodle” way back in my days of youth.

A friend I’ve known for many years, “Jack” is not just a designer/draftsman, but is also a carpenter, bricklayer, painter, and roofer. He can hang the gutter and downspout, install the plumbing and don the electricians hat when needed. Less not I forget, he has a canny sense for landscaping.

Reflecting on this wide range of “Jack’s” abilities, it prompts my thinking that there should be some type of saying affixed for someone that is proficient in a wide range of trades. I’ll ponder.


Back to the painting, this center motif, while a part of “The House That Jack Built”, is a separate painting of its own, and as this section of the painting also progress’s, I will interject a close up image of “Jack” from time to time.


This image appears a little on the dark side, still working with lighting (flash creates too much glare).


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

Today,  Monday, October 6; “Jack”.

Monday, October 13 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.
