“The four delicate streams of water flowing from this ancient fountain lend a sense of activity and personality to this sun-drenched scene.”
– Thomas Kinkade
From my many conversations with Thom, I recall his enthusiasm as he talked about Plein Air painting. In Plein Air, or open-air painting, the natural light is always changing as the sun moves across the sky and clouds can play with this natural light. Thom always traveled with a small portable studio and was ready to paint at any time.
Today, if I close my eyes, I can hear him recount how he was walking through a small village in Tuscany and came across this stunning fountain scene. The village spoke a picturesque old architectural language to his artistic heart, and Thom captured this moment on canvas in Tuscan Village Fountain.
