The painter of pretty cottages, patriotism, and religion has turned his hand and paintbrushes toward the American icon of ELVIS. Thomas Kinkade, or the Painter of Light™ has painted a sketch of Graceland and now plans to do a finished studio work in time for an upcoming anniversary of Elvis Presley.
It will be a commemorative work to be released next year, around the time of the 50th Anniversary of Elvis buying Graceland and the 25th year of Graceland being open for public tours.
Artist Thomas Kinkade paints Elvis home
“Kinkade said his sister was an Elvis fan and that he seemed destined to paint the famous home: “When I was growing up, I had Elvis music in the house all the time.”
The artist told the newspaper that in the final work he envisions “a likeness of Elvis somewhere in the painting and Elvis’ Cadillac.” SeattlePI
