A very rare Original PAINTING by Thomas Kinkade. The painting is an original background used in a animated feature film. Thom worked for two years on this film when he was fresh out of art school. He and friend, James Gurney, were the background painters for the film.
Much of the artwork for this film was destroyed and this is one of the few surviving backgrounds. This is a very rare opportunity for the dedicated Kinkade collector to own a work from this key period in Kinkade's career.
In 2001, I came across one of these Kinkade backgrounds and loaned it to the Kinkade Museum in Monterey California. Thom had not seen one of these rare early works in many years and traded me for one of his larger paintings. The background I traded to Thom will be in the new Kinkade museum that is being developed. You can see how much Thom valued work from this period of his career. The scene depicts a dramatic moment in the movie where the Crystal Ice City is revealed.
This is a beautiful and colorful work from, a very important scene. Rick Barnett, author of the Thomas Kinkade Story quotes Kinkade concerning his work on backgrounds for Fire & Ice. Kinkade's work on Fire and Ice involved extensive use of artistic imagination. The worlds depicted in the filmier not real places but fanciful, dream-like settings. "You had to rely on your creativity for every painting you worked on, " Kinkade remembers.
There was no way to go out and photograph an ice crystal palace (Our Painting) or a subterranean world filled with bubbling lakes of fire. So you had to make it up as you went. I think that experience was invaluable in my future work, since most of what I create today is highly imaginative. The Thomas Kinkade Story by Thomas Kinkade and Rick Barnett, 2003.
