The Grand Canyon

The Kinkade family recently explored the desert southwest in an oversized RV, equipped to be a rolling art studio. It has long been my ambition to paint The Grand Canyon, truly a place where mortal man stands on the edge of eternity.

The ever-changing moods of the canyon surprised me. The sun alternately brings formations into sharp focus, and then casts them into shade. As I painted, a burst of sunlight struck the foreground cliff; I worked hurriedly to render the dramatic effect. My The Grand Canyon captures just one of the many expressions that passes over this sculpture from the hand of God.

  • The Grand Canyon – the third painting in Thomas Kinkade’s Southwest Series – is an indelible memory of Thom’s, captured in paint.
  • Taking it’s cues from nature, the look of the Grand Canyon changes hourly.
  • Here, wispy clouds cast the intricate carvings of the canyon features into sharp relief.
