Lucky |  M. Flanegan | 6" x 6" oil on wood panel  |  sold

She survived a tangle with four dogs. four dogs.

Just a few weeks old, she'll be livin' large at The Drift Inn Wildlife Sanctuary in Driftwood, Texas ( through July. Thank you Kim! I'm grateful for these organizations and would like for them to continue serving our community.

This was the first time I got to play with water mixable oils as I aspire to be a solvent-free painter. The sampler pack seemed like a good idea for starters: titanium white, cadmium yellow light, yellow ochre, phthalo green, alizarin crimson and french ultramarine. A few of these pigments are foreign to my palette...what? no burnt umber? no burnt umber. So a refresher in creative color mixing was in order...good thing I wasn't in a hurry.


  1. she is indeed lucky to have an angel like you to rescue her! stunning, miss marilyn. simply stunning.

  2. I love this, especially the blonde eyelashes. A beautiful painting, good for you.
