Dan Mackin Original RELAX & ENJOY
This Original Painting done by Dan was on display at Disney when I found it ! Dan was there at a meet & greet, I had a great time chatting with him & In the end I bought this Painting ! Just made me feel good you could say.
Born and raised in Southern California, Dan Mackin’s earliest art impulses were influenced by his travel to Asia in the military in 1969. He sailed a small boat to Central America from 1971 to 1973. During this trek he lost his camera overboard and started recording his travels by drawing and painting scenes.
He has always had a fascination with tropical foliage and water. This, coupled with his great enjoyment creating art that led him into the art profession. He loves seeing a blank canvas transform into a window of paradise that before was only a thought. His aim is to communicate a sense of being in paradise; …when you see tropical water you feel excited and tranquil at the same time.
Mackin works nearly every day, usually long hours. When he can’t sleep, he’ll sometimes work from 3:00 AM to dawn, go back to bed for a couple of hours, and then get back to work! His work is collected by various entertainment and sports celebrities, and appears in the collections of the International Herald Tribune, Sheraton Resorts, and the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. He has exhibited at the Tampa Bay Aquarium, Wyland Gallery Shows, and many other art gallery exhibitions throughout the U.S.
Disney has created their Legacy Program where about 30 fine artists around the world have been given licenses to paint Disney characters in their artwork. The artists have to submit sketches for approval and when the artwork is finished, it is shipped to Disney for corrections or approval. It is a long process, as the Disney animators are very particular about the character’s attire, poses, and activities and each image has to tell a story.
