The Wise Quacks

Left page
Right page
An oil painting for James Parker's book which is a part of The Flying Moleskin Project. The painting on each page is approx. 8"x5". A fellow wildlife fan, James chose wildlife as the theme for his book. Hope you enjoy it, buddy!

Looks as though Mom is taking the class on a field trip. They just left a sidewalk where the little ones played "don't step on any quacks". They are very smart, high achievers...thus my title: "The Wise Quacks".

I added liquin to some of the slower drying colors. As soon as it drys, it'll be off to you Vern!

  1. Fabulous Quackers for James. These scenes are always so lovely and endearing. I love what you did on each page

  2. This is so cute Dean, I love the palette, the subject and the title, a real winner all around!

  3. Adorable subject matter, Dean - and masterfully painted. I love the balance of color in these cute little quackers!

  4. This is absolutely wonderful, Dean. Beautifully painted and great colors.

  5. Beautiful portrait of a lovely family. I'm afraid that mother duck will be going quackers soon with all those young'uns! Vern is a lucky man...


  6. What a gorgeous gift of original art you've gifted James, Dean! This is stunning and I do think one of my favorites ever. Love your play on words too...

  7. These quackers are absolutely adorable. You did a fantastic job.

  8. OMG, this is one of the cutest paintings. Absolutely love it, James is one lucky guy to get this in his journal.

  9. Dean, not sure how I missed this blog for so long but I caught up with it the other day and I really love your "Wise Quacks" entry. This is a great project!
