A Summer’s Morning
The play of light on water intrigues and challenges me today, much as it challenged the Impressionist masters a century ago. Like Monet, I love to set up my easel on a riverbank and attempt to capture the multiple reflections and the sparkle of sunlight as a gentle breeze ripples the stream.
In my impressionist work A Summer’s Morning, the reflections of sailboats dance on the crystal waters. I try to make my brush dance on my canvas – much as Monet’s brush danced when he painted outdoors a century ago.
- A Summer’s Morning is in the first set of paintings from Thomas Kinkade’s Robert Girrard Collection to be released since 2002.
- Thom sets the scene in A Summer’s Morning on the banks of the river Seine. Featured prominently in the works of the world’s most famous painters, the Seine has always been a source of inspiration and muse for impressionistic art.
- For a period of six years, Thom painted under the brush name of Robert Girrard from 1984 to 1989: “I wanted to reinvent academic styles – implementing my own use of light. Impressionism was an avenue that beckoned that pursuit.”
- These highly valued and collectible paintings have only recently been made available to the public, and only in very limited quantity.
