New ... We just learned that
Joshua Meador worked
on The Ten Commandments
by Daniel Rohlfing
Joshua Meador's Pillar of Fire in The Ten Commandments
The Pillar of Fire scene from Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments, 1956.
In 1934 at New York's Julien Levy Gallery, Salvador Dalí declared, “I’m in Hollywood where I’ve made contact with the three American Surrealists, Harpo Marx, [Walt] Disney, and Cecil B. DeMille. I believe I’ve intoxicated them suitably and hope that the possibilities for Surrealism here will become a reality.”

Here's something we just learned from IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base). In 1956, Cecil B. De Mille (one of Dali's top three American surrealists) was filming his Biblical epic The Ten Commandments at Paramount Studios. He was having difficulty animating the "Pillar of Fire" scene. De Mille asked his friend Walt Disney (another of Dali's American surrealists) for help. Disney offered de Mille the services of Joshua Meador.
Joshua Meador Monster from the Id Forbidden Planet
Joshua Meador's Monster of the Id from MGM's Forbidden Planet, 1956.

We had long known that Walt Disney loaned Meador's services to MGM Studios for their 1956 Sci-fi blockbuster, Forbidden Planet. In that film, Josh was responsible for the "Monster of the Id" scene. For his efforts, Joshua Meador gained an industry-wide reputation for being able to stretch the abilities of on-screen animation effects to new heights.

Looking back 64 years, Meador's pre-computer animation effects look considerably dated, but in 1956, it was state of the art and was considered phenomenal.

Forbidden Planet (MGM)
"Monster of the Id"

To this day, Joshua Meador's work on Forbidden Planet
is revered among both sci-fi fans and animation effects insiders.
The Ten Commandments (Paramount) uncredited
... (pillar of fire)

Walt loaned Joshua Meador's services to Cecil B. DeMille
who wanted assistance in animating the "pillar of fire."

What makes Joshua Meador's work in 1956 such a great story is a meeting he had with Disney the previous year.

In 1955, Walt invited Josh to his office and offered him an unheard of deal. What were the terms? Walt allowed Josh to move out of LA to Carmel where he could focus full time on his fine art painting while still drawing his full Disney Studios salary. This gave Josh the financial security to invest his efforts in becoming a well recognized fine art painter. In return, Josh agreed to return to Disney Studios when needed for specific projects.

Well, that was the plan. But the next year, 1956, did not go according to the plan. Through Walt, Josh was offered a great opportunity to expand his animation credentials beyond Disney Studios. In a response to a request from MGM and a later request from Cecil B. de Mille, Walt's prized Director of Animation Effects was offered a couple of opportunities. To put it mildly, 1956 was quite the year for Joshua Meador's animation effects career.

For the past thirteen years, Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery has featured the fine art paintings of Joshua Meador. Over the years, we have been learning more and more about Meador's career and sharing that information with our gallery visitors and clients.

Now, we have improved our Meador webpage.

Regarding his animation effects career, we have added two webpages, "iconic film clips" and "4 Artists Paint 1 Tree". The film clips webpage visually demonstrates what Joshua Meador brought to Disney animation. The film 4 Artists Paint 1 Tree may be about Disney animation but also gave Josh an opportunity to demonstrate his palette knife technique on prime time television. He explains in his own words how he lets colors mingle as he spreads them across the canvas.

Regarding his fine art painting career, we've added a "Critics, exhibitions, etc" webpage. This webpage shows what art critics said of his fine art painting, including the San Francisco Chronicle's Alfred Frankenstein and the LA Times' Arthur Millier. The webpage also shows thumbnails of the many Meador paintings we have sold.

If you wish to consider acquiring a Joshua Meador painting from our collection, we'd love to hear from you. Just call, text or email us at 707-875-2911 or If you're close by, we can arrange an opportunity to preview your selected painting(s).

If you wish to sell us a Joshua Meador painting for resale, please email us at Include large file photos of your painting (front and back) with notes regarding its title, dimensions, and condition along with any stories relating to the painting's provenance. We are especially interested in stories about Joshua Meador, such as, "My parents bought this painting directly from Josh at his studio."

New to us from legendary watercolor artists Robert E. Wood and Ralph Hulett

Recently, Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery has acquired two stunning watercolors by two of California's premier watercolor artists of the past, Robert E. Wood and Ralph Hulett. We are offering them unframed, so that whoever acquires one or both, framing can be done according to their own tastes and preferences.

Robert E Wood with Watercolor Artist Ralph Hulett and others
from a California Watercolor Society Meeting in 1965,
left to right, Gerald Brommer, Ralph Hulett, Jae Carmichael, Robert E. Wood and Keith Crown.

Robert E. Wood (1926 - 1999) studied with Phil Dike and Rex Brandt. By the late 1940's, he was exhibiting watercolors in museum and gallery shows. He was known for regional subjects found near Claremont, CA where he was attending college, and harbor subjects near Corona del Mar and Newport Beach."

"By the early 1960's, he was acknowledged as one of the premier California Watercolorists to emerge during the post-war era. While most of his works have been painted with transparent watercolors, he also freely incorporated opaque colors or other complimentary mediums if they improved a specific work of art. His paintings often balance areas of pure abstraction with stylized but recognizable subject matter.

Ralph Hulett (1915-1974) studied at the Chouinard Art Institute under Millard Sheets and Phil Dike. He was a member of the American Watercolor Society (AWS) and the California Watercolor Association (CWA). He was among the post WW II California Scene painters, and was known for his urban landscapes of booming post-war Los Angeles along with landscapes and sea scapes around California.

After Chouinard in 1938, Ralph began working at Walt Disney Studios, creating watercolor backgrounds for use in Disney's multi-plane camera. He was a close friend of Disney artist Joshua Meador, and often accompanied Meador on sketching and painting trips.

If you wish to consider acquiring either or both of these paintings, we'd love to hear from you. Just call, text or email us at 707-875-2911 or If local, arrangements can be made for viewing and purchase.

San Francisco's de Young Reopens!

Celebrating its 125th anniversary, the de Young reopens its doors to an exhibition featuring artists who live and work in the 9 Bay Area Counties. All admission into the museum building is by advance tickets.

The de Young's hallowed exhibition space where Bay Area art lovers have previously seen the works of Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Manet, Whistler, Vermeer, and so many others, now is filled with the artworks of contemporary Bay Area artists. Their new show, The de Young Open features 877 works done by 762 Bay Area artists. .

The selection of these paintings was done by a jury including four of the de Young's and Legion of Honor curators along with Bay Area artists Enrique Chagoya, Mildred Howard and Jung Liu.

The jurors made their decisions based on digital images submitted by the artists, and jurors did not know the identity of the artists when making their choices.

Their task was enormous. An astonishing 11,514 works of art were submitted by 6,188 artists. Only 7.5% of the paintings were chosen for the exhibition.

What's really unique about this exhibition is that the paintings are for sale, and the artist gets to keep 100% of the sale price.

To make room for the largest number of works, the exhibition is hung in "salon style," as tightly packed as Gertrude Stein's apartment walls or the walls of the 19th century Paris Salon.

For the visitor, the effect is dazzling and nearly overwhelming ... as the saying might go, "It's hard to see the trees because of the forest." But, after catching one's breath, the experience of seeing so many different works by such an array of artists is a wonder to behold.
