“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 Fourth corner additions

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 13-Fourth Corner with Suggestions

 

And finally, the Fourth corner of the Pen & Ink worksheet with suggestions from viewers to “The House That Jack Built” project. Again, this is a camera shot rather than a digital scan so coloring is different from the initial “4th corner” post.

Thanks to all that have participated in this project.

 

As I continue to lay out the painting, some shifting, additions, and alterations of suggestions can still take place up to the final strokes of the brush.

 

Of note: One item suggested “Old Bay”, the issue of Copyrights has to be considered and as of now the can reads “New Bay”.

 

This painting, as I continue to prep the layout, will take several weeks to complete. The plan (as of now) is to Post another intermission art image next Monday, then work out a schedule of Posting progress images of the painting as I work to a finished painting.

 

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

Today,  Monday, September 8; Fourth Corner with suggested items.

Monday, September 15; An intermission image.

Post Progress images of the painting till completed.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 11

The House That Jack Built Fourth Corner

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 11-Fourth Corner-Pen & Ink Image

 

The above Pen & Ink worksheet is the Fourth and final of the four corners open for suggestions of items to be included in the final painting. Anyone new to the “The House That Jack Built” please scroll back to Monday’s June 16 (Week One) and June 23 (Week Two) Post for a description of this current project.

 

The guidelines for the “House That Jack Built” project:

If you please, just one suggestion per person for each corner, when posted.

 

At this Fourth corner, requesting suggestions of:

Items you might see in a Front or Back Yard.

or

Items found around the Kitchen.

 

I have to admit, this last corner is the one corner I have been most apprehensive about. There is limited shelf space (only one) and limited space in general being restricted by the gate. Please, I ask that you scroll back and notice how items were applied to the first three corners and then consider the type of item you suggest and how that might fit within the design.

There are, again, no interior floors so items that rest on a floor i.e. tables, refrigerator, etc will not work.

 

There are only so many things/items that can be selected for inclusion to create an overall balanced final composition, and suggestions will come from different sources (Facebook, WordPress Blog, Google Blog, LinkedIn, etc.), so take no offense if yours is not chosen.

 

There is no compensation for suggestions used, but I will keep tab of the names offering suggestions directly to my post or to the “Shared” posts. At the end of this project I will “pull a name out of the hat” and send that person a signed, first print of the final painting.

 

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

Today, Aug 25; Post the Fourth corner for suggestions of that area

Sept 1; Intermission. Post a past art image.

Sept 8; Post the Fourth corner with applied items from suggestions.

The final sequence will be a continued posting of past images till the posting of the completed painting.
