As someone who had their childhood bedroom transformed into what my parents affectionately refer to as "the Disney Room," I'm well-versed in how special fine Disney-inspired art remains to people of all ages. Artist Heather Theurer also sees wonderful scenes in classic movie moments, and they truly need to be seen to be believed.
These aren't just any old doodles, either. Heather's paintings are highly-prized works of art that can be found in Disney Fine Art galleries, and collectors everywhere consider these to be among the cream of the crop. Check out this series of realistic Disney princesses, and I guarantee you'll be considering redecorating.
Title: "The Dark Side of the Moon"
It looks like Zhang Ziyi, a Chinese actress known for movies with strong women like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, was the real-life inspiration for Mulan. Heather retained Mulan's irrepressible strength even among gorgeous cherry blossoms and flowing silks.
Title: "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes"
Cinderella found the beauty in everyday chores, and Heather certainly found the beauty in her character. The amount of detail in her paintings is just outstanding, and it's striking just how much this looks like it belongs in a museum.
3. Merida (Brave)
Title: "If You Could Change Your Fate, Would You?"
Though Merida was never overly concerned with her looks, it's obvious that she has nothing to worry about when Heather is in charge.
4. Rapunzel (Tangled)
Title: "I See the Light"
Rapunzel looks magnificent in this true-to-form dress and, of course, enough flowing hair to fill the canvas. As much as I love the ending of Tangled, I've got to admit that I'm happy Heather opted to portray Rapunzel with her long blonde hair instead of her short brown bob.
5. Lilo (Lilo & Stitch)
Title: "Ohana Means Family"
Lilo will always be an honorary princess in my eyes, so I'm more than ecstatic that Heather included her for this series of Disney-inspired works. In fact, the realism, the little Nemo in the background, and the inclusion of Scrump makes this my absolute favorite of the bunch.
6. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
Title: "Love Blooms in Winter"
There are hidden details in these paintings that instantly make you do a double-take. For instance, behind Belle in top, left-hand corner, you can see the face of Beast made up of branches and snow. Plus, Belle looks quite a bit like Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones, so you may be staring at this one for a while.
7. Anna and Elsa (Frozen)
Title: "Never Let It Go"
Lastly, for the absolute cutest item on this list, here's Anna and Elsa (and Olaf!) doing what sisters do best: being adorable. I don't think there's a Frozen lover on Earth who could look at this and not react like Anna in this picture.
For those who want to be surrounded by these works of art all the time, you can find where to buy Heather's phenomenal pieces here. Something tells me you won't regret it!
