Original 24×18″ Acrylic Painting Framed $9500 at Disney’s D23 Expo 2017 – SOLD
“Princess Aurora” is the painting that the Walt Disney Company contracted me to do as a special debut for the 2017 Disney D23 Expo! I was very happy to have the opportunity to paint her. She is of course Princess Aurora in her “Briar Rose” guise, from Disney’s 1959 animated masterpiece “Sleeping Beauty.” She truly was a joy to paint, so much colour and detail in this one. I was able to reference a lot of the original Disney concept artwork which inspired this piece – particularly that of Disney Legend Eyvind Earle (one of the true masters of American illustration from the past century, both his Disney and personal work is amazing), and Mary Blair (love her!) which contributes a very classic feel blending with my own contemporary look. I adore all the little critters & birdies in Sleeping Beauty (especially the Owl!) and did my best to include quite a few o f them in this painting. Disney debuted the original painting at their D23 Expo in Anaheim as part of the Disney Dream Store, the original painting has sold, but ©Disney Prints, merchandise and Limited Edition Canvases are available through Disney at their themeparks & galleries (if not quite yet, then you will so very soon!).
If you are in California, you can get this image in various formats at Disneyland’s WonderGround Gallery. In Florida, she’s available (or will be shortly) at the WonderGround Gallery there located inside Disney’s Marketplace Co-Op in their Downtown Disney / Disney Springs, as well as various other locations at Walt Disney World.
Don’t live in California or Florida? Don’t worry, you can get my Disney artwork shipped WORLDWIDE. As I’m not a castmember nor do I get a discount on my own art, lol, I can’t really sell it here myself on my own site, but there are many many other options for you!
The easiest option (with international shipping, too!!) is to visit YourWDWStore online HERE
They are a local online Disney shopping service that retails merchandise sold at the Disney parks & galleries.
Alternately, many locals and castmembers have eBay stores & eBay auctions that retail Disney park merchandise, many of them ship worldwide (and you can even find out of print or retired images!) – you can see which items (usually hundreds) of my Disney artwork are currently available on eBay just by clicking HERE
You may also order this piece worldwide through Disney’s “Disney Parks Shopping App” available on your smartphone (availability varies, it’s worth it to check periodically as inventory there fluctuates).
Currently they are re-structuring their own Park Merchandise shipping, but typically Disneyland’s WonderGround Gallery is very happy to ship worldwide and takes orders via email at: [email protected]
or by telephone at: 877-560-6477. Just let them know you are interested in Jasmine Becket-Griffith’s artwork from WonderGround Gallery and they would be happy to let you know what is currently available.
