“The House That Jack Built”-Week 33

Jack, Bottom segment

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 33-Jack-III

 

Moving Counter-Clockwise on the center motif, this is the third segment of “Jack”.

Whereas the first segment reflected Suburbia, the second segment a rural view, the third segment extends the rural flavor with farmland.

As with the other two segments, the oil paints are wet in this section and after they dry, I will go back to brush in additional shadows, color variations in the trees, rework the silo roof, and maybe add an extra car/truck.

For size reference, the main road measures 2” (50mm) in length, the Tractors, only 1/8 of an inch (3mm).

For a refresher or for those new to “The House That Jack Built” painting, see Week 16 & 17 for a view of the full “Jack” Four segment motif before the aerial view embellishment’s .

“The House That Jack Built”-Week 31

Jack, Top segment

“The House That Jack Built”

Week 31-Jack

 

First, I have secured a space and date for the display of the painting “The House That Jack Built”. I will, again, do a Solo Art Exhibit at Ukazoo Bookstore. Scheduled for the months of September/October. The tentative opening reception is Sept 12th.

It is a ways off, but the time works for completing other art images (both paintings and watercolor/pen & ink) and all the necessary framing in order to display a full Art Exhibit to complement the main subject, “The House That Jack Built”.

 

I have another Solo Exhibit in May, at the Laughing Pint Tavern (Highlandtown) but that is for Watercolor/Pen & Ink works only).

 

Back to the painting. “Jack”, the center motif, while a part of “The House That Jack Built”, is a separate painting of its own. Divided into four segments, each section will display a different aerial view. Working with the smallest of brushes and some assistance from a magnifying glass, it is best seen on-line as one section at a time and this week’s section (the top segment) reflects suburbia. For size reference, the horizontal road measures 3 3/4” in length, the vertical road 1 7/8”.

For a refresher or those new to the painting, see Week 16 & 17 for a view of the “Jack” Four segment motif.

As with the rest of the painting, once this portion of paint dries, I will be reworking colors, detail, adding shadows, any additional embellishments, etc.
