I am a collector who specializes in Thomas Kinkade paintings. Thomas Kinkade is the only living artist who has sold more paintings than Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Gaugin, and Leonardo Da Vinci combined.
You too can own a hand signed piece of this legendary artist. In acquiring my collection, I sometimes purchased out whole collections that overlapped into duplicates. This started my adventure of selling Thomas Kinkades on the secondary market.

"I began my career creating art for an animated feature film, and it has been a life-long dream to tell some of the story of my own life — the story behind my art — through the medium of motion pictures. In the film, I’m featured at work, painting a study of Christmas Cottage, — the radiantly lit, loving home that sheltered and supported the development of my character. We are releasing the official Christmas Cottage print especially for my many loyal collectors."

"Gone With The Wind"


Thomas Kinkade’s Gone With The Wind
Inspired by the 1939 Classic Movie starring Starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh

Romeo and Juliet. Anthony and Cleopatra. History is filled with couples bound together forever in the social mind because of their undeniable and storied relationships. As it was with these others... so it is with Rhett and Scarlett. Indeed, to me, there has been no greater romance ever chronicled than that of the dashing hero and strong-willed heroine of Gone With The Wind. Perhaps it is the tragic backdrop of the Civil War that serves to enhance the emotional impact of this storied love affair. The ultimate triumph of the human spirit, so well displayed in the film's masterful conclusion kindles the romantic within me...as it can within you."

Thomas Kinkade introduces his Disney painting
"Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland"
the third painting in his new "Timeless Disney Dreams" series.

"My 'Disney Dreams Collection' celebrates great moments from Walt Disney Films. I call these paintings 'narrative panoramas' because each painting tells the entire story of the film in one image." ~~ Thomas Kinkade

ABOUT TINKER BELL AND PETER PAN FLY TO NEVERLAND

As the third piece in my Disney Dreams Collection, Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland promises to be my most exciting work yet! The Peter Pan story presents the wondrous fantasies of youth: secret island hideaways, visions of mermaids and pirates, and the irresistible urge to fly high above the world. I am powerfully aware of the tug of youthful dreams – might even say that as an artist I strive to stay constantly connected with the wide-eyed wonder of childhood.

As with the first two paintings in my twelve piece Disney Dreams Collection (affectionately referred to as the “Disney dozen” by diehard collectors!), I try to tell the whole story in a single image – what I refer to as a “narrative panorama”. We see Neverland in the distance, just below the “second star to the right”, an enchanting land rising above the clouds. As the moon bathes the scene with its silvery light, the clouds take shape, if only in our imagination, as characters from the adventure – Captain Hook, Smee, the Lost Boys and the ubiquitous ticking crocodile. Below us we see London, its lights twinkling with a radiant glow, as the eternal waters of the Thames flow off to distant horizons.

For me, the central character of the story will always remain Tinker Bell, the enchanted fairy princess who makes the entire journey of imagination possible. As the bells of Big Ben begin to toll in the evening air, won’t you grab a handful of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust, and join me on the adventure of a lifetime? As Peter Pan put it, 'Come on everybody, here we go…' -Thomas Kinkade

# Thom has placed a total of 25 N’s in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland as tribute to his love for his wife Nanette, as well as in celebration for his 25 years as a published artist.

# The clock tells the time of 8:02 — in the movie when Peter and the Darlings land on Big Ben, it is 8:04 — but Thom took artistic liberty and changed it in celebration of the year he and Nanette married: 1982.

# Thom has incorporated many hidden Mickeys in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland, including a Mickey balloon seller in the city. Can you find them all?

# Take a look at the upper left of Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland and you will see Neverland, complete with an Indian encampment, Captain Hook’s pirate ship, the Mermaid lagoon and more!

# The clouds represent the transition from the clearly detailed city of London below to the gossamer world of childhood dreams and fantasy — and Neverland — above. Where “time is never planned!”

# Remember in the story that as the children return to London they look back to find the sailing ship “disappearing” in the clouds? What and who else are hiding in the clouds in Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland? Can you find Captain Hook, Smee, and the Lost Boys? Do you hear the Crocodile ticking?

# There’s also a tribute to the two previous Disney Dreams Collection “stars”! Can you find Snow White and Pinocchio?

 

"Snow White Discovers the Cottage"

ABOUT SNOW WHITE DISCOVERS THE COTTAGE

Thomas Kinkade worked on this masterpiece, "Snow White Discovers the Cottage", for two and a half months, spending hundreds of hours to create a timeless fairytale image. This first image in the series honors two of Thom's greatest ideals-home and family-and the spiritual sense of the destiny that we all possess-returning home. Snow White has just found her true family and safety, and is at peace with nature. Thom has also included in the image as a symbol of wisdom.
Thomas Kinkade has hidden a total of seven N's on "Snow White Discovers the Cottage", as a tribute to his wife Nanette. And, to honor this new collection of Disney favorites, there are also seven Mickey silhouettes hidden in the image --One for each Dwarf.

Thomas Kinkade said about this painting "As a child my imagination was stirred by the great animated films of Walt Disney. Imagine my delight when Disney recently opened their archives to me as I prepared for my first-ever series of images inspired by classic Disney moments.

In the first piece of this series, Snow White's world is alive with color. The Prince's castle where Snow White will eventually discover happiness looms majestically in the distance, while a foaming waterfall and fanciful animals remind us that Snow White is at peace with all of nature. Of course, I also included my iconic colorful flowers which festoon the scene with hopeful reminders of spring.

I hope that Snow White Discovers the Cottage will be a fairy tale come true for Disney and Kinkade collectors everywhere." ~~Thomas Kinkade

 

"Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream"

ABOUT CINDERELLA WISHES UPON A DREAM

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! -Thomas Kinkade

GLOBAL WARMING

Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. HOWEVER, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and TEMPERATURES ARE RISING!

Few people are more dedicated or effective at improving the environment than Dr. Jane Goodall.

Gov. Schwarzenegger Signs Landmark Egg Bill

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed A.B. 1437, a bill backed by The HSUS that requires that starting in 2015 all shell (whole) eggs sold in California must come from hens who were able to stand up, lie down, turn around, and fully extend their limbs without touching one another or the sides of an enclosure. In other words: California will become a cage-free state. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE....
