By using the Girrard brush name, Thomas Kinkade achieved absolute artistic freedom. This freedom led to a joyful experimentation that resulted in numerous breakthroughs and advances in Kinkade’s artistic techniques and talents.
Robert Girrard, an early brush name for Thomas Kinkade, was a romantic impressionist whose subjects are exquisite in nature, applying his sophisticated use of unique color combinations yielding a soft, atmospheric effect to each canvas. The Girrard Style was influenced by early impressionistic art.
The play of light on water intrigues and challenges me today, much as it challenged the Impressionist masters a century ago. Like Monet, I love to set up my easel on a riverbank and attempt to capture the multiple reflections and the sparkle of sunlight as a gentle breeze ripples the stream. In my impressionist work, A Summer’s Morning, the reflections of sailboats dance on the crystal waters. I try to make my brush dance on my canvas, much as Monet’s brush danced when he painted outdoors a century ago.
