Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream
RARE STUDIO PROOF Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream 18×27 Kinkade Disney Canvas
The story of Cinderella has captivated the hearts and minds of young girls everywhere, ever since it was first told. After all, what girl doesn’t dream of growing up to marry a prince, and becoming a princess? This dream has been brought alive in Thomas Kinkade’s painting “Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream.” Cinderella and Prince charming can be seen walking through a beautiful village, with the Magic Castle in the background, and Cinderella’s step-sisters off to the side. It truly is every little girl’s dream come true. Read what Thomas Kinkade said about this painting when it was released in August of 2009:
“Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream, fourth piece in my popular Disney Dreams Collection, has given me the chance to push the limits of my ability farther than I ever have. Hundreds of hours of detailing were required to capture a setting magical enough for a princess and her charming prince. On the towering mountain in the distance we see Cinderella’s castle, a vision inspired by the movie. Coming down from the castle road we see Cinderella’s horseman and coach, galloping towards the sleeping village below.
As Cinderella and her prince cross the stone bridge over the lover’s reflecting pool, we pause to enjoy the numerous details that make this scene so inviting. Cinderella’s many friends are here. The whimsical mice with their charming antics can be found dotted around the scene (see how many you can count!). Cinderella’s other tiny helpers, the colorful birds of the kingdom have built a nest in the tree house hidden in the foliage. Flowers glow in abundance, while overhead the stars twinkle radiantly. The entire scene seems aglow with the magical blessing of the Fairy Godmother, who rides atop a splendid rainbow at the top of the painting. The stone statue in the garden at the lower right suggests Cinderella’s years of drudgery, yet the sparkling gown she wears reminds us that dreams really do come true. Lucifer the cat is busy tormenting the playful mice, while the stepmother and stepsisters look upon the sweethearts with amazement and perhaps a hint of joy. The king and his duke, fashioned as weathered chimney pots in my painting, gaze with delight at the goings on. I’ve put tributes to my earlier Disney collection – Snow White, Pinocchio, and even Peter Pan and Tinker Bell can be found by a patient viewer. This is proof positive that for Cinderella’s deepest wishes to come true, she’ll need a little help from her friends!”
Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream is the fourth painting in Thomas Kinkade’s new Disney series entitled Disney Dreams.
