Merry Christmas

Courtesy of my number one fellow duck devotee Simon, comes this image created by Carl Barks. One of a series of oil paintings that he created for fans of his duck stories after his retirement from twenty five plus years working for Western Publishing.


  1. God, I just love Bark's oils. It looks like he painted with wet candy. Merry Christmas!

  2. Also, he had a wicked and dark view of his fellow man, as this lush painting testifies.

  3. I did at one stage have that wonderful book "The Fine Art of Donald Duck" which came in either blue or burgundy binding and that was a real feast of Bark's paintings Mykal.

    Probably is now off the Richter scale in terms of affordability. It was very expensive when it first appeared in 1981.
