“The House That Jack Built”© 18 x 24 inches, Oil on board.

This 3 year ago painting project was set up to include suggestions, by viewers, of items to be put into the painting as it progressed with on-line postings.

I provided the shell/framework, doors and windows and during the course of the on-line project I posted different sections of the house and asked for suggestions of items to be included (with certain house location guildlines).

About 75 to 80% of the items included in the painting are by audience participation to the two year long painting project.
