Art Notes

Thomas Kinkade was a life-long admirer of Walt Disney and the wonderful characters he created. While Thom re-created many of his favorite stories on canvas, he also envisioned classic Disney characters set within traditional Kinkade images. In these paintings from Thomas Kinkade Studios, his dream is proudly brought to life.

As Mickey hands Minnie a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a thankful Minnie throws her arms around Mickey’s neck, thanking him for such a wonderful day in New York City.

The day is coming to an end. While the sun creeps low beneath the skyline and pierces through the already changing red and orange autumn leaves, the familiar Kinkadian lamp posts begin to flicker and light-up throughout the park. But the day isn’t over yet, Mickey has one more surprise for Minnie, a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park.

Mickey’s thoughtful planning has not only created an unforgettable day for Minnie but has also reminded us all that our kindest gestures speak louder than words.
