Yosemite Valley, Late Afternoon Light at Artist’s Point
Nowhere on Earth am I more aware of the sheer awesomeness of God’s handiwork than Yosemite Valley. Yosemite Valley, Late Afternoon Light at Artist’s Point, depicts the valley as seen from a little known place called Artist’s Point – named in tribute to the many 19th Century artists who favored it as a sketching ground.
In 1989, the National Park System selected my Yosemite Valley, Late Afternoon Light at Artist’s Point as their official painting. I was thrilled with the honor, but after all, God alone deserves the credit for the beauty and majesty of Yosemite Valley.
- Thomas Kinkade was chosen for his Yosemite Valley, Late Afternoon at Artist’s Point by the National Park System as the Official Artist for the National Parks in 1989 out of 2,700 other entries.
- Yosemite Valley, Late Afternoon at Artist’s Point was also displayed on a ten dollar commemorative stamp issued by the United States Post Office, and on a gold medallion.
- Artist Point in Yosemite was so named because many 19th Century artists – like Thomas Hill and Albert Bierstadt – would go to that spot to create their sketches and draw inspiration from this great valley.
