The entrance to The Magic Kingdom – an ‘invitation’ to experience the glory, the magic, the joy, the majesty and splendor, the imagination and creation. How can we enter The Magic Kingdom without wondering who is the king? And Walt Disney would surely be the first to point us above. We need to look to the heavens to appreciate that Disney drew his inspiration through prayer. A religious man, Walt Disney studied the Scriptures with a respect for all faiths, mindful to not offend others with his beliefs.
What I love about Disney and Disney movies is the foundation in Judeo-Christian values, bringing us the hope that good triumphs over evil. In the painting, I enjoyed presenting The Magic Kingdom entrance with an emphasis on the clouds, and with several trios of subject matter, including hidden Mickeys of course! Of much interest is an article of Disney’s own testimony at the following link:
Rosemary’s original painting entitled “Invitation” is currently available at The Magic Kingdom on Main Street at the Art of Disney. It is beautifully framed with a linen liner and, as with all of Rosemary’s originals, bears a Mickey nameplate with the title inscribed.
