About Thomas Kinkade Yosemite Valley Painting

Driving the old Yosemite Valley ring road, I found myself in a familiar spot. I brought my paint and canvas onto that inspiring boulder, and, in little more than an hour of feverish inspired work created Yosemite Valley. A powerful insight struck me as I carried the canvas to my car: these mountains are nothing less than an image of God’s grace. So returning to my studio, I used my Yosemite Valley study as a foundation for a major studio composition, The Mountains Declare His Glory.
