Beauty and the Beast by Thomas Kincade

Of all the Disney love stories, perhaps Beauty and the Beast is the most poignant. Beast's true identity is a charming prince who is discovering love in the form of the beautiful Belle. In my painting I memorialize that magic moment when they first begin to discover their love for each other. Many of the characters from the movie are present, including Belle's eccentric father Maurice, the wonderful characters of Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and of course, Lumiere. In the distance, we see the village that is a central setting for many of the film's most important moments. As with every piece in my Disney Dreams Collection, I attempted to portray a panorama of the entire movie, rather than an individual scene. My desire is that the viewer's eye would wander around the painting making discoveries in every corner of the image. Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love represents, in my mind, my highest accomplishment so far in the Disney Dreams Collection.

The crowning achievement and the central discovery in the image is the sweeping sense of romance that is at the core of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. Here truly is unconditional love in its purest form. I hope you sense that love every time you look upon Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love

Tinkerbell Art Canvas by Thomas Kinkade

As with the first two paintings in my twelve piece Disney Dreams Collection (affectionately referred to as the "Disney dozen" by die hard 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", as the full moon bathes the scene with its silvery glow. The lights of London twinkle along the river Thames, as 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. But 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.

The Night Before Christmas by Thomas Kinkade

I painted a home that could have been the setting for Clement Moore's unforgettable poem earlier in my career. It is the centerpiece of Victorian Garden II, where it sits in a sylvan spring garden, embraced by lavish, dew-drenched blossoms.

The Night Before Christmas revisits the stately mansion, while the change of season works a dramatic transformation of the scene. Snow shrouds the foliage, replacing the gemlike dazzle of flowers in the earlier piece with a tapestry woven in shade of white. The lamp is festooned with wreath and bow, a sled stands ready-to-ride on the picket fence, a jaunty snowman greets guests.

Peaceful Retreat by Thomas Kinkade

There is something supremely satisfying about a life that is self-contained, complete unto itself. Thoreau lived such a life on Walden Pond. I like to imagine living in just such splendid isolation in a setting of my own choice in a secluded a  Peaceful Retreat.

This simple cabin provides everything a man needs to sustain a rewarding life. The stream is pristine; I can drink its pure waters. It teems with fish; my boat lets me pursue the mountain trout when I choose. The woods abound with game. My cozy Adirondack chair invites me to relax and savor the refreshing mountain breeze. I've stacked firewood for the campfire that will warm the chill evening air. Above all, I am surrounded by beauty that feeds my spirit with endless reminders of God's grace.

Cinderella Wishes Upon A Dream by Thomas Kinkade

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. This is proof positive that for Cinderella's deepest wishes to come true, she'll need a little help from her friends!
