    ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO WE STAYED AT THE WILDERNESS LODGE AND THERE WAS A BEAR AND CUB PRINT IN THE HALLWAY OFF THE LOBBY ON THE WAY TO THE SNACK BAR. I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE FOR IT AND CAN NOT FIND IT. I EVEN CONTACTED THE HOTEL AND THE DESIGNER OF THE LOBBY. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE ARTIST OR THE NAME OF THE PAINTING. I WOULD LOVE TO GET IT FOR MY HUSBAND BECAUSE HE SAID IT REMINDED HIM OF HIMSELF AND OUR SON.

    THANKS TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP

    Hi Diane...I'm going to be at the WL this weekend and I will be happy to look for the bear picture for you, but, I do know that many if not all of the art works in Disney hotels are specially commissioned originals, and probably are not available as prints.
    Your husband must have REALLY liked it if it still makes an impression 5 years later!

    If a photo would help, please email me with your address and I'll try to get a good shot! Lin

    Diane,

    I've been looking for the same picture for my brother for several years as well. Please let me know if you find anything out about this picture. I'll do the same.

    Thanks a lot,

    -- Fred

    I wonder if it might have disappeared in the recent spate of renovating - do you think the people who auctioned off the room furniture might have seen it?

    It's very possible. I'm not very well-versed in operations at the Lodge. I do have a great picture of the painting that I found online after some digging. Any ideas of who to forward it to at the lodge for more info?

    This particular painting was stolen approximately 4 years ago along with several other lodge items and paintings. Absolutely ridiculous!!!

    King Leonidas,

    Do you know any more about it? The artist's name? Anything?

    Have you checked ebay? I know things from the Poly have been sold there after the renovation.

    Hope that might help.

    What about this. If there's an image available of the print, couldn't you take that to a printer or copier location & have it printed yourself? Just like you can do with your vacation pictures.

    I am considering that if i can't get the original. I wanted to get it the original size, and i don't think the quality will be that good if I enlarge it. Thanks for the advice -- it may be the way i go.

    With a decent digital image, I don't think the quality should suffer that much. We recently took one of our Disney pictures & printed it out in 8x10 format on our printer on photo paper & it came out great. Framed it & it looks great.

    I don't know how to attach a photo, and I'm not able to post url's yet.

    Maybe you can help with the picture posting thing.

    Thanks,


    Fred

    Thanks for sharing, that is lovely. What kind of person steals something from a resort wall. :confused3

    Very sad indeed.

    OP here. I found the picture myself on line a while back too. I couldn't find it anywhere for sale so I just sent it to my husband by e mail as a surprise. I have since lost that image so was glad to see it here again. Will have to subscribe to it. Thanks Again!
