+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"The most memorable place in Kansas City must be the Country Club Plaza with
its old world architecture, you may gave a hard time distinguishing this famous
shopping and entertainment neighborhood from similar districts in Barcelona,
Rome, or Lisbon
- what a wonderful surprise to find in the midst of the American Great Plains!"
Do you know the definition of Plein Air?
A Plein air is a Artwork done by the Artist on location, on the spot,
in one sitting, at one time from beginning to end.
Plein Air, a French term meaning literally "open air", refers to a style of
Impressionistic painting that is created outdoors at a portable easel. The
artist captures his surroundings at a given moment in time, before the
specific lighting and mood of the moment slips away. Plein Air paintings
attempt to render the full impact of this light on color, no matter the
altered state, rather than adjust the hues to appear more "typical." There is
an energy to the brushstrokes, as the artist captures the scene before light
changes and the moment is lost. Kinkade has a passion for Plein Air painting.
It allows him to capture the joy of the moment, so that he can share it with
others for generations to come.
