The Altarpiece: An Update


The mild weather Saturday permitted me to use my table saw and get some work done on the altarpiece. The piece that became the 2 doors was cut. The buildup and hinges were attached to the doors, and now the doors are ready to be hung. Once the doors operate smoothly, then it will be time to remove the doors and the hinges and begin the primer coat of paint. Some cosmetic work needs to me done and that will take some time too. All in all I am pretty satisfied with how my little project is coming along. Projects drawn on paper are much different for me when they take form. This picture shows the case with some of the molding I created from 1/4 inch plywood that I put around the inside of the case that will give the painting a frame. The doors will be framed also on the inside as they too will be painted. Little by little the altarpiece takes shape.

Stay tuned.

I wait with abated breath.

In my discussions with Jan van Eyck about my altarpiece, he seems to be very interested in my idea for bring religious imagery together with political satire. : )

I hid all my mistakes with the angle of the photo. I will be doing some cosmetic work before I add the primer.
