a nod to Mary Blair

For Mary Blair

While I was at Disney World this past February, I learned about Mary Blair. She was a studio artist that Walt Disney used for much of the concept work. She also designed "It's a Small World" and the huge mosaic inside the Contemporary Resort Hotel. I have such respect for her- women artists in the 40's, 50's and 60's were often overlooked. (Still are) 

My painting above is a nod to Mary Blair. She painted a similar concept painting for Cinderella. The carriage is a die cut that a friend gave me in Disney. The rest is a gouache painting in my art journal.
