    "The Art of Ron Dias" - "Calaveras County" Theme Park Color Key Painting (Landmark Entertainment, 1991). Ron Dias (1937 - 2013) was a force in animation. He was a magnificent background artist, Art Director, designer, etc. He had a long history in many capacities with Walt Disney Studios, Hanna-Barbera, and so many others. Landmark Entertainment made a serious effort to bring a major theme park to Valencia, California in the 1990s. A full-scale model was built and Landmark brought in many Disney Theme Park legends to work on this project. The roster included Marc Davis, Wes Cook, and Ron Dias. The park would be called "Calaveras County" and one of the park's major themes was Mark Twain's "Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." This is an original Ron Dias Color Key painting for the Frog's Jumping Contest proposed section. Acrylic on illustration board measuring 15.5" x 8" with painted area being 12" x 5". Signed by the artist in the bottom left corner. Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
