"Unknown Fleischer Film" (circa 1930's) - Shane Miller Watercolor

Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings!

Since I will be away for part of December, I thought this would be a good opportunity to post some Christmas/Holiday related art. To see other holiday related items, select "Category-Holiday" from the "Content by Category" list on the right.

Even though I don't know the film this is from, it is a fantastic image for this Christmas season. Shane was an outstanding artist and the light/shadow in this nighttime watercolor is really amazing. This digital image does not capture the real beauty of Shane's work - the full tonal range, strokes and the overwhelming sense of wonder that seems to jump from the page. I hope you enjoy it....

Shane Miller Watercolor

By the way, if anyone can tell me the film this is from I would appreciate it... Just to clarify, the piece was a gift and I was told this was from a Fleischer film but there are no notes on the front or back of the piece. If this is from another film, let me know.
