Something about Disney and art just blends well together. For instance, if you’ve ever seen a Thomas Kinkade painting, particularly those with Disney characters and scenes within the painting, you can get a sense of serenity just by gazing at the picturesque details and scenery.

Although Thomas Kinkade, the “Painter of Light” himself, has passed, his legacy remains intact through Thomas Kinkade Studios, which has adapted to his distinct painting styles and techniques, especially when implementing Disney characters and scenes into some of the paintings.
