12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-Memorial Day Intermission Post

56

Project: Intermission Post for Memorial Holiday Observance.

Title-“Brizard” by Craig L Haupt

While I have no artwork related to this Holiday Observance, I post a very simple color pencil and watercolor image.

 

These weekly Posts are also seen by followers from outside the borders of the United States and while today is our national holiday here in the United States for those fallen in past and present wars, I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those, both here and around the world, who have given their lives in the struggle against oppression and tyranny.

 

I will continue the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s Art Project Monday, June 6.

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 30

Singer on a Stick

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 30-Holiday Intermission

 

It is my intent, with the Holidays and illness behind me, that next week I will post the “in-progress” center section with “Jack”. Until then I offer this last “Holiday Intermission”.

This weeks’ posted image, is another very simple drawing. In 2005, after a several year pause, I found a number of ‘doodles’ in my sketch books that renewed my interest and during a flurry of activity, from 2005 to 2008, some of these completed images were extremely simple in line and color. This renewed interest didn’t end with 2008, but I then settled in and resolved that I would no longer allow any extended pauses to interrupt my inherent need to continue creating art.

 

Entitled “Singer on a Stick”, this 8” x 10”, Color Pencil and Watercolor on paper, was finished July, 2006.

 

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

Today, Monday, January 12; “Holiday Intermission”.

Monday, January 19: “Jack” Center of Painting Progress Post.

“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.

Curved Arms

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 22-Intermission

 

The new computer has had a few issues and they chose to occur on last weeks day of Posting. While not an unsurmountable problem, I was cut off from the internet last Monday and Tuesday till it was finally resolved.
