“The Painter of Light,” Thomas Kinkade is famous for idealistic, light-infused images. One of America’s most collected living artists, Kinkade communicates his strong faith and values through a glowing, romantic style of soft lines, warm colors and inner glow which was inspired by his early work in set design. When Kinkade creates a painting, it is often reproduced in countless forms, including books, posters, figurines and gift items.
For my painting Pinocchio Wishes Upon A Star we see Pinocchio upon a hillside overlooking the setting of his adventures. We see Honest John and Geppetto's workshop where Pinocchio was formed. On the right we see Pleasure Island and Monstro the whale preparing to engulf Geppetto's sailing vessel. Butterflies and sparkles lend magical accents as the Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket look on. -Thomas Kinkade
