Wish Upon A Rainbow

So, going to DCA/DL this morning, in about 6 hours I guess. Just got home from work and now it's time for a little shuteye. Thought I would throw this on here in honor of our trip. The inspiration, beyond the obvious, was an actual painting by an artist whose name I don't recall, that I saw at DL shortly after Jim Henson died. It was Mickey and Kermit, with their backs to the viewer, sitting on a log watching the sunset with Mickey's arm around Kermit's shoulder. I have looked for that painting ever since, both at Disney parks and online. Let me know if you ever come across it.
A mouse and a frog
Sat on a log
Remembering Walt and Jim.
How rainbows and wishing stars
Reminded them of them.
How sometimes child laughter
Makes them want to cry
And now that it is after
Their memories cannot die.
While passing is always tragic
It cannot end the magic
Made by Walt and Jim
Every time you think of them.
Remember, when you wish upon a star
It makes no difference who you are.
Every song about rainbows you ever hear
Brings your wish a little more near
For mouse, frog, whomever you be
Even the lovers, the dreamers and me.

I have been looking for this editorial photo for years. It was in our paper. I have no idea what happened to the paper.

I have always wanted a copy of that photo. If it is on the net, I have not been able to find it.
