MEET THE ARTIST
For a period of six years, Thomas Kinkade painted under the brush name of Robert Girrard. This anonymity allowed him the freedom to experiment in style and subject matter, to explore with palette, brush strokes and broken color. He employed techniques utilized by the French Impressionists – Monet, Manet and Renoir – techniques which have influenced the style that has become world-renowned through The Painter of Light™.Learn More About Robert Girrard

Summer Breeze is a daydream from heaven; more than that, it is a dream of a perfect day. Puffy white clouds dance in the heavens, while white sails shimmer off azure waters. The joyful tranquility of the scene refreshes the soul.
Southern France—the hills of Provence and the dramatic coastline of the Cote d'Azur—is blessed with such perfect days, when an endless stream of sunlight pours over beaches and gardens. The great Impressionist masters—Monet, Sisley, and Renoir—were inspired by such splendor, now I, as Robert Girrard join their company.
I began my love affair with Impressionism years ago, on a walk through Southern France. In the coming months, Nanette and I intend to return to the source on a bicycle sketching tour.
Summer Breeze uses broken color and broad strokes to engage the imagination; it invites you to join the artist in my heavenly daydream.
