study of handsome Beaux | 6x 6" oil on panel Flanegan | commission 

Have you ever awoken to someone staring at you? 

This study of Beaux was a warm-up of an in-process 12x9 commission.
He's a delightful soul who stays with Kerbey and me when his
humans are traveling - pure joy.

Rolex

Rolex (detail) | 9x 12" oil on Belgian linen Flanegan | commission

A while back, Rolex lost his front left leg to cancer.  How fitting that he would give me a pose with such confidence and resolve.
Here he is at a dashing 15 years {105 for you and me} thanks to his loving humans.
: )
This is a detail as all subtleties were lost in the larger shot. I hope to post a shot of Rolex with a tighter res.

congregation

congregation | 8x 13" oil on panel Flanegan | sold
Last year I donated this painting to a fundraising silent auction and my friend won the bid. I love this view of the rolling hills in Dripping Springs, especially during the last hours of the day, and plan to paint it again soon.

I had forgotten to get a shot of the painting until last night, thank you Kristi!

Dante

Dante | 16x 20" oil on linen-faced panel Flanegan | commission
Dante is a charming Springer Spaniel who loves to hunt...and model too it seems.
: )
We had two photo sessions - never before has a dog given me one sequential pose after another. It was a sight to behold. Spaniels are eager to please and Dante did not disappoint. He was so handsome in the afternoon light. Thank you Elizabeth.

Chase

Chase | 8x 8" oil on cradled wood panel Flanegan | commission
We have the pleasure of Chase's company while his humans {my friend Angie and her son, Jack} are on vacation. This painting referenced a photo I took of Chase while he was on the front porch during one of his visits. I couldn't resist the pairing of his handsomely mottled coat with the dappled morning light. It was glorious. The light was dancing around him as if he was beaming from within. How lucky am I?
: )
Thank you Silvia.
