All Aboard for Christmas

All Aboard for Christmas

Americans have a fascination with trains, and rightly so. Trains are a large part of what made us such a prosperous nation, because it gave us the ability to move our ample resources quickly. The American love of trains is commemorated in an American tradition of Santa or Christmas Train Rides. There is nothing quite so fun during the holiday season as bundling up with your entire family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, and going for a train ride through the snowy country-side. Often times there will be hot cocoa or hot apple sider, and conductors will lead the merry riders in singing Christmas carols. Decorations are placed along the route for families to “ooh” and “ahhh” over. It truly is a magic experience. Thomas Kinkade had brought this experience to life with his painting “All Aboard For Christmas.” Read what he said about this painting when it was released:

Christmas Moonlight

Thomas Kinkade Christmas Moonlight 18×24 Gallery Proof G/P Canvas

Available Now From Karen’s Kinkade Art Store!

One of the things that makes Christmas such a special time of year is the way all the houses look on a moonlit snowy night. The twinkle of the Christmas lights and the reflection of the moon on the snow is one of the most beautiful sights in the world. It’s almost magical how quiet and peaceful everything looks covered in a blanket of snow. Thomas Kinkade has captured the beauty and peace of a moonlit winter night in his painting Christmas Moonlight. Read what he said about this painting when it was released:

“A full moon on Christmas Eve is so very romantic; especially when the surprising radiance of moonlight reflects silver on a snow-filled landscape. In Christmas Moonlight, a brilliant full moon dances on the wispy clouds, paints a silver pathway over the pond, touches the snowy tree limbs with light, illuminates the walk and bridge with a welcoming glow, and bathes the roof of our solid stone retreat in a warm, milky white.The scene is joyful and welcoming. I’ve draped the roof and eaves, even the bridge with festive Christmas lights. The graceful arch of the antique stone bridge and the foot path that glistens in the moonlight seem to invite the passer-by to stop by and sample the hospitality of the home. Golden light pours through big windows and smoke curls up from the chimney; the cozy comfort of the family life lived within offers a welcome refuge from the cold, crisp Christmas Eve.In Christmas Moonlight man and nature work together to confirm the warm, inviting, generous mood of Christmas Eve. Distant barns remind us of God’s bounty. The silence is pervasive … wait, is that Santa’s sleigh we hear in the distance?

The Jungle Book

Thomas Kinkade The Jungle Book G/P 18×27 Framed Limited Edition Disney Canvas

Available Now From Karen’s Kinkade Art Store!

It’s pretty impossible to think about the Jungle Book without immediately thinking back to Walt Disney’s iconic animated movie. The story of Mowgli, Baloo, King Louie, Junior, and the rest of the jungle animals. Even now, I bet you can hear the song in your head. “Yo, ho ho… I wanna be like you hoo hoo.” The Jungle Book was one of the best Disney movies because it was just plain fun. Thomas Kinkade has brought the fun to canvas in his painting The Jungle Book. The whole crew is there, with Mowgli, Baloo and Bagheera in the front, and Kaa, and Shere Khan hiding in the background.

Sleeping Beauty

Thomas Kinkade TRIPLE SIGNED Sleeping Beauty 12×18 R/E Framed Disney Canvas Oil

Available Now From Karen’s Kinkade Art Store!

The story of Sleeping Beauty is probably one of the most well-known childhood stories, thanks to Walt Disney, who brought the fairy tale to in animation. Now, Thomas Kinkade has brought the story to life again in his 2011 painting Sleeping Beauty. Taking his inspiration from the film, Kinkade has painted a beautiful piece that is sure to please anyone who looks at it. Read what Thomas Kinkade said about this piece when it was released:

“Sleeping Beauty is my eighth creation in the Disney Dreams Collection, and is the most lavishly detailed of the series that I have painted to date.  My painting is filled with the enchantment of the original story.  From the woodcutter’s cottage where Briar Rose was hidden by the three good fairies to the magnificent castle where Princess Aurora would awaken to “love’s first kiss”…and then in the distance we see the climatic fight between the good Prince Phillip and the evil Maleficent in dragon form; I’ve interpreted the entire story in a narrative panorama for all to enjoy.  Of course central to the painting, and as testament to the strength of true love, we see the prince and his awakened beauty in each other’s arms as friends great and small gather in celebration of their undying devotion.   Whether you are a fan of Sleeping Beauty or simply an unabashed romantic who believes “love conquers all”…enjoy this painting as my gift to you.”

The Spirit of New York

The Spirit of New York

The Spirit of New York PANORAMIC 18×36 A/P Limited Edition Thomas Kinkade Canvas

Available Now From Karen’s Kinkade Art Store!

New York City is one of the oldest and grandest of all American cities. The largest city in the United States, it is also one of the most spirited cities in the world. Thomas Kinkade realized this while on a trip to New York, and saw the boats on the river as symbolic of New York’s spirit… so of course he had to paint it! In his painting The Spirit of New York, Kinkade brings to life the view from the East river, looking out over the Brooklyn Bridge, and the rest of New York beyond. Read what Kinkade said about this painting when it was released:

On a recent trip to New York with my family, we got a chance to boat on the East river, enjoying seldom seen views of the city. As I savored the sights, I began to sense the pulsing rhythm of this great metroplis. It dawned on me The Spirit of New York is a mix of courage, resolve and an indomitable sense of celebrating life in all of its diversity.

As I gazed up at the mighty Brooklyn Bridge, I realized that this cast panoramic view of the city is alive with the energy and vitality that makes New York unique in all of the world. What image could better summarize The Spirit of New York in all its radiant energy?

As I labored on the Epic canvas (over 6 feet in length and 3 feet in height) I came to see the many boats upon the East river as somehow symbolic of the many facets of New York. The humble harbor tug flying ‘Old Glory,’ the hardest working boat on the river, expresses New York’s tremendous resolve in the face of challenges. Cargo ships remind us of the economic power of this busy port, whilke a miliary vessel suggests the power of heroism resident in the great city. In the distance, a vintage East River ferry harkens back to New York’s colorful history and an array of pleasure boats on the river confirms that the city still knows how to throw a party.

In the far distance, Lady liberty still holds the torch of Freedom high, while clouds dance overhead like a legion of angels, guarding the jewel beneath.”
