Having A Ball

Disney is going to get so sick of me :-)

Here is my latest submission to the lovely Disney Fine Art company. I wasn't quite sure if this would turn out when I was sketching Cinderella's face. Its pretty hard to see your "vision" when you're only looking at pencil lines. But, I'm glad I stuck it out (thank you Polish stubborn genes!).

And let the layering begin....My little foray into black & white made me forget the frustration of mixing the perfect color only to have to paint over it all over again because one layer just wasn't rich enough.

And finally.....

"Having A Ball" - 20" x 24" acrylic

And speaking of almost throwing in the towel, the painting I'm working on now I really almost did just that. But I'm so glad I haven't. I'm about 75% done with it, but the holidays and more full-time work days are going to put this on the backburner for a bit. Stay tuned!


  1. I LOVE the graphic art look of this, especially with the shading/layering on the edges. I love it!

    So do you just submit things to them as you go or is it like you build a portfolio of submissions?

    1. Thanks! There is an email address designated for artists to submit their work to Disney Fine Art. So, I just email them jpgs as I go. They "may respond if they are interested, but get too many submissions to respond to all entries." yada yada. I have yet to hear from them....I've started to get a little creative (and loopy) with what I say in those emails lately... :-)

  2. Cinderella has always been my favorite! Love it! I thought Hotel Transylvania was hilarious--honestly couldn't stop laughing. :D
