Disney’s Haunted Mansion: Tightrope Girl
One of the pieces I painted for Disney that debuted at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, CA. Licensed & contracted by Disney, ©Disney, this is my original acrylic painting featuring Disney’s “Tightrope Girl”. This piece is inspired by one of the most iconic scenes in one of my all-time favorite Disney attractions – The Haunted Mansion! The infamous room that houses the stretching portraits left a huge impression on me as a child – a true piece of Walt Disney Imagineering magic. The delightful creepiness of the character known as the “Tightrope Girl” speaks to me in particular, and as a Florida girl, I identify with the alligator-based narrative. In my interpretation I have painted her as a tall, narrow acrylic painting to keep the general aesthetic of the portrait in full “stretch.” Keeping with the Southern Gothic feel of The Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square at the Disneyland® Resort, I have expanded the atmospheric background into an immersive Louisiana swamp, and of course the character herself has been given my personal treatment with the larger head / big eyes painted in the pop surrealist/Jasmine Becket-Griffith style.
