Art Notes

Minnie knows that a day full of shopping on Rodeo Drive isn’t complete without the perfect ensemble.

Thomas Kinkade Studios has illustrated Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive perfectly, paying incredible attention to the details, from the brick-fan patterned streets and building architecture to the ornate lamp posts and flower arrangements. Like Minnie’s summer dress, this piece is an instant classic.

KEY POINTS

  • While Donald is busy carrying all of Daisy’s boxes, Mickey attentively waits for Minnie by the fountain
  • The traditional Kinkade light depicts the Southern California sunset beautifully.
  • “Thomas & Company” is a nod to Thomas Kinkade.
  • Goofy and Pluto can be seen in the background at the grand opening of Goofy’s Surf Boards, meant to remind you of Mickey and Minnie in Hawaii from the Passport to Adventure series.
