Snow White Dancing With The Dwarfs
Framed Canvas Giclkee Print

Size: 19 x 22.5
Sometimes the best celebrations in life are unplanned. If people just start showing up at my house for no reason, the word gets out. Before long neighbors are in the backyard. People are texting and inviting friends. The party slowly percolates until somebody starts playing the music.... And then, a full on celebration breaks out, as some of the best and worst dance moves are displayed on the patio. The evening goes on until we have worn ourselves out with what can only be described as an aerobic exercise of laughter and lunacy.
This is what the scene of the Dwarfs dancing with Snow White feels like from Walt Disney’s first major motion picture: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. A slow discovery of fun that breaks into a celebration. Trying new things as they get to know the mysterious Princess. That moment bonds the characters together. It’s what I experience in my backyard when we let all of our insecurities and pretensions go and just enjoy good company. Our status and achievements are not qualifications to dance, celebrate and have a great time.
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.”
