Artist Notes

A Heroes Parade in the Hundred Acre Wood! A celebration of friends: Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, are shouldered and cheered by Owl, Rabbit, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Christopher Robin, and Tigger too. Aren’t friends the true heroes,
those who sacrifice to make others’ lives better? They don’t count the cost. They just do without thought and often even avoid the recognition.

Pooh saved Piglet, Piglet saves Owl, and the good acts keep going. We see the group assisting each other along the way – each rooting the others on. It is a wonderful world of examples of friendship we see in the youthful world of
Christopher Robin. “Hip hip, hurray for the Piglet and the Pooh!”

My high school Art teacher, Rudy Gunter, is my hero. With his skills he could have sculpted for the wealthy. He could have done anything in the sculpture world. Instead he chose to sculpt young artists, changing the lives of thousands.
He mentored and helped me in ways transcending just a teacher. Rudy was in my thoughts as I painted this scene.

This image of the Heroes Parade gives us a chance to review the heroes in our lives; our friends, those that make a difference and may not even know it. Friends do what they do because they want to, not out of obligation. They do because they are friends. We should hold Heroes Parades for all the special friends in our lives and let them know.
– Eric Dowdle

Erid Dowdle Biography

disney-artistSee Artwork Here

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 BIRTH OF A STORYTELLER

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.

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

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.”

A MAN WHO MAKES THINGS HAPPEN

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, puzzles, calendars, adult coloring books, personalized wooden puzzles, 3D Stratascapes, and more.

Dowdle products have captured the attention of small and large big-box retailers, selling more than one million puzzles each year, giving Dowdle a large and growing retail presence.

THE MANY TALENTS OF ERIC DOWDLE

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 BYU TV network, distributed worldwide. Sirius XM Radio has aired hundreds of programs, “Traveling with Eric Dowdle.”

1984 – Eric earned his Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout rank at the age of 14
