The painting depicts a beautiful scene from Yosemite National Park. It was painted in 1989. Plein air (open air) work, done on location at Yosemite. Thom was drawn to Yosemite. He painted there a number of times.Kinkade wrote the following words about painting at Yosemite: There are few places on Earth that are more awe-inspiring than Yosemite Valley nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Home of the undisputed King of the valley is "El Capitan", an exposed rock face of unmatched size that serves as silent sentinel presiding over the majesty of Yosemite's other natural wonders. You hear Him in the rustle of the wind in the trees... Taste, smell and feel Him in the fragrance of flowers and in the sweet air and water found in the cathedral of the wild. As an artist, Kinkade is famous for the luminescent light that he demonstrated in his paintings of cottages, churches, and gardens.
However, the art world is now considering his early work of the American West and his landscapes as some of his best and most. This beautiful painting is an masterpiece and represents great care and attention by the artist, Thomas Kinkade.

From the age of four, his calling as an artist was evident, and by 16 he was an accomplished painter in oil under the apprenticeship of the well-known artist Glen Wessels. After studies at the University of California at Berkeley, and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Kinkade began work for the motion picture industry at age 22. He personally created over 600 background paintings for the animated feature film, Fire and Ice. This intensive period of work for the movie business may well have been the genesis of Kinkade's mastery of pictorial lighting effects. In 1983, Thomas Kinkade left the film industry to pursue his vision as painter of light-filled landscapes. Since then his career has been documented in feature articles and/or editorial exposure in such well-known magazines Architectural Digest, American Artist, Collector's Mart Magazine, Collector Editions, Lively Arts and Leisure, Worldwide Challenge, US Art, Southwest Art, and Weekend. He is a regular guest on radio talk shows and and has made a guest appearance on ABC's popular network show, "Home", starring Gary Collins. Kinkade's impressive list of honors includes: two Certificates of Merit from the New York Society of Illustrators, two Founder's Awards from the National Parks Academy for the Arts (the first artist ever to receive this award twice), a two-man show at the C. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana, over 10 one-man shows, and countless personal appearances. Furthermore, Kinkade was chosen as the official artist for the 1989 National Park's Collector's Print and the 1990 Commemorative Press Collector's Print honoring Rotary International. Also in 1991 he won "Plate of the Show" in Southbend, Best New Artist of The Year for NALED in 1992, Collector "Award of Excellence" in 1993 and Lithograph of the year for NALED was named second runner-up for Lithograph of the year for NALED and first runner-up for Artist of the Year.
