Thomas Kinkade "The Cross" Framed Textured Print

The Cross was born after Thom received an honorable request to provide an image for a large wall, as part of a redesign of the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. Thom attended the re-opening of the library in April 2010 to unveil The Cross as a 32 foot mural. Thom has hidden 3 "N's" in this image, as a symbol of love for his wife, Nanette.

Thom took inspiration from one of his prior releases, Sunrise, to create this extraordinary work. Sunrise is now sold out in various sizes and editions, and is one of Thom's most successful pieces, The Cross is certain to follow that same path. Thom spent many hours perfecting this masterpiece - the original canvas is an entire six feet long - the largest that Thom had ever painted! The image is framed, and applied to a mat board, then placed inside of another frame - giving it the appearance that image is "floating". Image is gelled to give the paper a textured look.

"As part of the redesign of the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina, I was asked to provide an image for use on a large wall. A very large wall - truly a moment of destiny for any artist. To create the oil painting that would be the basis for the final mural, I utilized one of the largest canvases I have ever attempted in my studio. A full 6 feet wide, this canvas would be enlarged to create the final epic sized mural. As I worked it was as if heavenly light began to pour upon the canvas. A final aspect of the creative process came when Franklin Graham himself suggested a fitting title for the work: The Cross. This simple title reflects the lifelong calling and legacy of his father, the evangelist Billy Graham. My prayer is that this painting will bring hope to many just as Billy Graham has brought hope to millions through the gospel message.

About the Collection
Known as The Painter of Light™, Thomas Kinkade became recognized as America's most collected living artist. Reflecting his modest background, Kinkade painted bucolic scenes with themes of simple pleasures and inspiring messages. With each brushstroke, Thom eloquently captured the beauty in the world with an instantly recognizable use of color and light.

As a devout Christian, Kinkade used his gift as a vehicle to communicate and spread inherent life-affirming values. Kinkade credited the Lord for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist was to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace, and joy into their lives through the images he created. The letters he received every day testify to the fact that he had achieved this goal.
