DISNEY LIMITED EDITION: THE WARMTH FROM WITHIN
ABOUT THE IMAGE: Inspired by Walt Disney’s 1955 Animated Film The Lady and The Tramp and features Lady, The Tramp and their puppies outside on a cold winter night.
ABOUT THE MEDIUM: Limited edition prints are reproductions of an original piece of art work. The giclée prints on canvas are museum quality prints that last the upwards of 100 years. Giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant, archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. The run of prints are capped at a specific number. Limited edition prints can be more valuable to art collectors than prints without a restricted number of copies because of the rarity of the prints. Each piece is hand-numbered and embellished by the artist. Each piece also includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Rodel Gonzalez is an artist of inspirational talents with a keen eye for seeing the beauty in the commonplace and grace in the ordinary. His story starts with an initiation into the art business through the tutelage of his father, Rick Gonzalez and grandfather, Felix Gonzalez, at the age of 9. "Growing up my father would always tell me to not be intimidated by the paint and be 100% sure about my intentions on my first stroke at the canvas, says Rodel. His explorations of color, form, and composition ignited a lifelong passion for the arts in its many forms.
ABOUT THE FILM: Lady and the Tramp is a 1955 American animated musical romance film produced by Walt Disney and released by Buena Vista Film Distribution. It was the first animated film distributed by the company and the first animated feature filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen film process.
