Belle dressing for dinner

[Text by Amberle Ferrian]

"Belle dressing for dinner" (belledrs.gif, 456x600x2, 12876 bytes) is the nineteenth in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]>.

One of the more endearing scenes in Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST occurs when Beast is preparing for his formal date with Belle, just before the breathtaking ballroom dance. Who could forget his nervous banter with Lumiere as he makes himself presentable to the woman to whom he has given his heart? But Lumiere is not the only person (well, object :-) working hard to make this a special night for the couple. This drawing depicts what we might have seen had Belle been the focus of this scene. And as she prepares for a wonderful evening, another of the Enchanted Objects assists while looking on with love and hope.
