    "Michigan J. Frog" Painting by Dick Duerrstein (Warner Brothers, 2005). "I'm just wild about..." -- Michigan J. Frog! Dick Duerrstein was Creative Director for Walt Disney Consumer Products for two decades. He left that position to enter the world of Fine Art. His style is to start all of his paintings with a distinctive light blue line, like an animator did. He then uses his paint palette to flow through those lines. He has had a stellar career applying Fine Art painting skills to animation characters. This is a rare one-of-a-kind Dick Duerrstein painting of the one and only Michigan J. Frog, in acrylics on canvas. The artist has signed his painting in bottom left. This miraculous singing frog in the top hat made his debut in the 1956 theatrical short One Froggy Evening, directed by Chuck Jones. He also was the longtime mascot for the WB network. This is a stunning painting! Open-front framed with a mat opening of 24" x 18" and overall size of 23.5" x 29.5". Fine condition.
