Art Stuff 86 – Part 2, Hauptcee Haupt, Paintings 4, 5, &6

Part Two, 4 minute Art Stuff 86 video features Hauptcee Haupt telling you all about his working with upcoming paintings 4, 5, & 6.

Hauptcee (my fourth fictitious twin brother) was also kind enough to graciously thank me for making him some chocolate cookies and now insists (in a nice way mind you) that I made a different type of cookie every time he brings up a finished painting to show.

Maybe I’ll do a cookie baking video just before he comes up.

For those just tuned in, Hauptcee is my fourth fictitious twin brother. See my FB and IG Oct 10 posting for an explanation of this ‘Hauptcee Haupt’ year long art project.

Also included in the video, Hauptcee got some of my homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies.

This is the text from the FB and IG postings detailing the creation of the ‘Hauptcee Haupt’ year-long art project:

“Hello Friends! Please take a moment to read this as a prologue, so that you may better understand my next year-long art project.

Here’s the quick backstory. I had submitted my art to “The Huts Magazine,” an Instagram online/print publication, and it was accepted. Of course, I ordered a print copy. The four images, Biography, and Artist statement all looked good in the magazine’s two-page spread. But ahh, there had been a mishap.

My name was reversed and minus the ‘L’; rather than being Craig L Haupt, I was now Haupt Craig!

While addressing this name snafu with close friends, comments ranged from theorizing that my new name sounded like a German or Dutch Renaissance artist to progressively sillier takes, finally culminating with my announcing I was now Haupt C. — or the final version — Hauptcee Haupt.

Then why not have a slight bit more fun and sign my next oil painting ‘Hauptcee’. That seemed like a simple progression.

Then I thought if I could have fun as the jovial ‘Hauptcee’ for an evening and a painting, why not be ‘Hauptcee’ for a year?! The next long-range Body of work/series of paintings could all be painted and signed by this fictitious Hauptcee Haupt, kind of like my fictitious ‘The Journey to Ukazoo’ ArtStory project.

So, I wanted all of you to know that in my next YouTube video tomorrow I’m going to introduce my fourth twin brother, Hauptcee Haupt. Three previous twin brothers have already been featured in earlier video episodes. And even better, my next solo art show in November 2023 will feature the new oil paintings of Hauptcee Haupt, himself. This artwork project will be the only paintings Hauptcee Haupt will produce. After his year of fame as an artiste, he’ll return to his family in Blue Ridge, Georgia, and continue working in his trade as a plumber and part time Librarian.

All this to make you aware of any references within future YouTube video and social media postings over the next year pertaining to ‘Hauptcee Haupt’ and just who the hell is Craig talking about!!

Thanks for reading and future watching!”

My YouTube Art channel

Well, a little dance is in order. My YouTube channel hit the 100 subscriber mark. Not a 10,000 or even 1,000 but that’s cool, this YouTube channel was never designed to go big-time. I made this YouTube art-diary channel for a close knit group of family, friends, and followers of my style of art and the journey of creating it. Thank you to everyone that has subscribed and viewed these continued video art postings!
