"Lucky Ducky"

6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

Well, what do you know? Duck McQuackers showed
up with good news!
His fortune cookie pronounced
him Lucky. We all
know that fortune cookie fortunes
always come true
so he will not stop quacking about it.
I asked him what he
expected; fortune? fame? "NO!
Much better than either of those", he quacked, *"Happiness.
Because Happiness
(quack, quack, ooooh, ooooh)
Happiness...Is A Warm...
yes it is....Tuuuuuuuuuuub."
*sung to George Harrison's "Happiness Is A Warm Gun".

Really like this painting, the handling of the shadows mixed with the color tones makes this work perfectively.

Hi Gwen,

In the freezing weather we're having here,
your little ducky is absolutely right,
Happiness is a warm tub.

Wonderful funny painting.
