The age-old question of what inner beauty really looks like? This story gives hope to us all! Give it a try. Be nice. Think of others first. Who knows, you might find it to be your best feature. And when the right person comes along they might discover something that they have been looking for all their life.
That discovery is the moment I chose to highlight in my painting of
“Beauty and the Beast Finding Love.” It’s hard to say when it happens.
That moment, when you start to see someone for who they really are. But when you do, you will know for sure that you will never see them the same again.
If you ever get the chance to meet my wife you’ll find the rare combination of inner and outer beauty. We love this scene in the story because the falling in love process is something we have enjoyed looking back on over the years. We like to reminisce as much as the next couple and I believe that’s what Disney would like all of us to experience over and over again.
About The Artist
Eric Dowdle has a background of hard work and dedication to God, family and country. He was born and raised in the heart of the western United States to parents of 12 children, 2 girls and 10 boys. Many of the stories of his youth are reflected in his artwork – a chicken stuffed in a mailbox, a young boy surprising his mom with flowers from the neighbor’s yard, children bravely walking a fence line or Boy Scouts playing pranks on each other.
The Dowdle family moved to Boston where Eric developed a fascination with folk art. This style of art brought together the values that were instilled in him throughout his life with his love of people, sense of humor and the ability to tell the stories of people through the detail of the artwork.
Eric, and his wife Deb, now live on a charming farm with their own family and a smattering of farm animals by the Wasatch Mountains in Lindon, Utah. After visiting beloved locations throughout the world Eric easily proclaims that home is “my favorite place on earth.”
Eric has been creating art for over twenty years. He started painting in his early twenties; parting ways with college after one year, to “go make something happen.” Making things happen is how Eric does things; painting, exploring, marketing, and working day and night to expand the business and his collection of over 300 paintings. Today, his original paintings have been converted into premium gifts and keepsakes, such as fine-art prints, and more.
Eric captivates people of all ages with his fun, quirky personality. His wit and charm make him a natural for television, radio and social media spotlights. He can be found starring in his second season of “Painting the Town with Eric Dowdle” on the BYUtv network, distributed worldwide. Sirius XM Radio has aired hundreds of programs, “Traveling with Eric Dowdle.”
