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.
Sunlit Garden, painted under my Impressionist brush name, Robert Girrard, exhibits a freedom of brushstroke and boldness of color that embraces the style of the French Impressionist masters. Girrard, like Kinkade, loves massive old stone and steel gates, intricate iron fences, and the equally intricate shadows they cast. We both love the flowers of spring -in this case, roses and dogwood festooning the grounds. And we both think that a fully enclosed courtyard is an irresistible, intimate space. I can only hope that you will join me in my Sunlit Garden.
