The Imagineer
24' x 32"

Oil on Canvas

By Russ Cannizzaro

My beautiful wife Laurie and I always visit Disneyland during the Christmas Season to celebrate her Birthday. We love seeing Disneyland decorated for the Christmas Holiday and especially enjoy the beautiful fireworks display, that for us rings in the Holiday Season. As the guests gather on Main Street and throughout Disneyland to view this spectacular Holiday Show something magical starts to happen during the performance - it begins to snow! On a clear night with the stars twinkling overhead snowflakes fall out of the sky and everyone gasps in wonder. It was that moment that inspired this painting.

 

The Imagineer is a tribute to Walt Disney and the little mouse that made it all possible. With Sleeping Beauty's castle adorned in winter, and the fireworks screeching across the evening sky, Tinker Bell flys through the air as everyone present is a child one more time again.

Finding Neverland

"Finding Neverland" is my first in a series of digital paintings that celebrate the magic of reading and the power of story. In this painting as a child is reading Peter Pan all the elements in the boy's bedroom represent what the child is experiencing while outside the window the story is unfolding.

Becoming Belle

"Becoming Belle" expounds on the power of the imagination as a child is reading the timeless story of Beauty and the Beast as her room is magically bringing the story to life.

Cinder Ella

Cinder Ella is the third painting in a series of artworks depicting children reading one of the Disney Classics as the story unfolds all around them.
