“The House That Jack Built”

Week 26-Fourth Corner of Painting

 

As with the posting of the first 3 corners of the painting, while there is considerable progress in this corner, there are still areas/objects that will be revisited and finalized.

Latch for the gate, mulling over a design for the kite/adding the tail, a bluebird on the birdbath, reworking the basketball net, making the mice stand out more against the ‘grey’ background, maybe a mushroom or two and a few smaller flowers in the ’planters’, etc.

The next area of concentration is “Jack” (in the center) which is a painting unto itself.

With the holidays upon us, I am going to slow down with this next area and for the next 3 weeks post past art images as a “Holiday Intermission”.

 

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

Today, Tuesday, December 16; “Fourth Corner Painting”.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 25

Wire Mustache

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 25-”Rain” Delay intermission.

 

To be completely honest, I am not ready to post the “Fourth Corner” of “The House That Jack Built”. Still being worked on and just not progressed enough that I would be satisfied with putting it out there for you to see.

I am still working on it now as this is posted and feel that it will be ready to post tomorrow, Tuesday.

As I continue work with detail in the fourth corner area of the painting “The House That Jack Built” I will post a past Art image.

My apologies.

To reflect my mood at not posting the Fourth Corner, I will post a Pen & Ink/Color Pencil/Watercolor drawing entitled “Wire Mustache” completed July, 2007.

Week 23-Third Corner of Painting

 

As with the posting of the first and second corner of the painting, while there is considerable progress in this corner, there are still areas/objects that will be revisited and finalized.

Hands and numbers still to be added to the cuckoo clock, red or white wine?, plus the “Alligator Tail” label, changing the stance of the music-box ballerina as well as adding hummingbirds and the finalizing the turtle’s shell etc.

The detail work has been slowing the process down but the painting is still moving along.

Today, Monday, December 1; “Third Corner Painting”.

Monday, December 8 and following Monday’s; Post continuing progress images of “The House That Jack Built” painting.
