Many of us grown-up Disney fans love collecting something Disney-related. Whether it's pins, Vinylmation, or clothing, many of us can attest to amassing something of our liking.
For an increasing number, it's Disney artwork. With several Art of Disney shops located throughout the Disney World theme parks, it's easier than ever to discover and get hooked on new Disney artwork.
Varied in style, composition and subject, there's a wide array of Disney art to choose from. And if you would call your decorating style "relaxed coastal," then you must check out the artwork of David E. Doss.
Doss hails from Pfafftown, North Carolina, and specializes in watercolors. He debuted his Disney collection in fall 2003 with "Mickey and Donald's Fun in the Sun," a painting depicting a beachside scene, with a foreground of weathered tin sandpails adorned with vintage-style depictions of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Pluto.
The success of Doss' first painting led to several more, including a resort-specific painting for the Polynesian, an exclusive Disney Cruise Lines painting, and many more.
While many of Doss' Disney paintings are very beachy in nature, he has also released several more that depict scenes of Halloween, winter, and more. A fun new release is a pair of paintings depicting a playground scene, with a foreground of Disney Princess lunchboxes in one painting, and Mickey lunchboxes in the other.
Doss makes regular appearances at the Art of Disney at Downtown Disney and at Epcot, and he will gladly sign and make a personal inscription for any art you buy. Click here to check David's appearance schedule at Art of Disney shops.
