Dane and His Flock

Dane and Flock

Oil Painting

My brother, Lionel Dane Melvin Jr., once had a flock of sheep.  It grew to a few hundred and, eventually, he decided to sell it. The ewe in the foreground is one of the original handful that he started with.  She was also one of the last he owned.  He kept her and a few other ancient ewes until she died .  Her name was Aunt Blanche. This is a portrait of them both.  It is not a recent work.
