Thomas Kinkade Studios

Thomas Kinkade, the famed “Painter of Light,” loved to share his passion for art and his creative process with other artists throughout his career. Thom believed in supporting artist development and exchanged ideas with artists. Through this collaborative environment, Thom passed down his methods and imparted the techniques, concepts and vision for his signature Kinkadian style.Today, the artists of the Thomas Kinkade Studios apply many of the same techniques created and used by Thom during his lifetime; from sketching to digital and oil brushwork, to image recapture and his use of light. Over time, these mastered skills have evolved into a Kinkadian style of art adored by art collectors around the world.

As the morning fog dissipates from the valley floor, all manners of life emerge to greet the sun as it paints its way through the clouds with a pallet of pastels. While ducks congregate, effortlessly trolling the glacier meltwater for food, cabin lights come on one by one. While dad pours his morning coffee, excitable little voices can be heard clearly from across the stream; children beckoning their fathers for another day of inquisitive wonder. Beautiful scenes, such as this one, are like memories, they do not simply happen, but rather they are thoughtfully designed. These are special times, when families can leave behind the hustle and bustle of life, like the smoldering remnants of yesterday’s campfire, as the day offers a host of new adventures. Like the overlooking, ever-watchful mountains, fathers stand strong and tall, offering protection for the ones they love. It is places like these that sons and daughters learn how to row a canoe and bait a hook, but more importantly, how to live in peaceful unity with nature. Thomas Kinkade Studios is pleased to present A Father’s Perfect Day , an awe-inspiring piece to commemorate our love and affection for fathers everywhere on Father’s Day.
