Art Notes

Thomas Kinkade Studios is proud to present the latest interpretation of an American film classic. A Christmas Story is a holiday tale filled with good humor, iconic imagery and quotable dialog, a perfect subject for a retelling in oil. Enter the small town of Hohman, Indiana and the quaint home of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker. In epic narrative style, Ralphie's quest for his BB gun is highlighted in rich and loving detail with the story's many unforgettable characters and events. Meet the Bumpus dogs whose rampaging appetites eventually cause the Parker family to have Christmas dinner in a Chinese restaurant. Smile while remembering how Flick, Ralphie's best friend, is "triple dog dared" into placing his tongue on a frozen flagpole. Enjoy finally having proof that Ralphie's dream gift did indeed come from jolly old Saint Nick. And, of course, what retelling of this holiday favorite would be complete without a depiction of what a BB gun can do in a young boy's hands. Ralphie nearly did "shoot his eye out!" Thomas Kinkade Studio's painting of A Christmas Story truly captures the magic of the film in full. A Christmas Story is a painting sure to delight fans of the film and be a desirable addition to the collections of all those interested in American cinema. The warm colors and subtle shadings bring an American cityscape to life as the town's citizens contend with their day. The welcoming lights of the houses turn on as dusk changes to night and the evening sky glows. Thomas Kinkade Studios wish you a merry holiday season and want to thank you for Sharing The Light™!
