+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"Romeo and Juliet. Anthony and Cleopatra. History is filled with couples bound together
forever in the social mind because of their undeniable and storied relationships. As it
was with these others... so it is with Rhett and Scarlett. Indeed, to me, there has been no
greater romance ever chronicled than that of the dashing hero and strong-willed heroine of
Gone With The Wind. Perhaps it is the tragic backdrop of the Civil War that serves to
enhance the emotional impact of this storied love affair. The ultimate triumph of the
human spirit, so well displayed in the film's masterful conclusion kindles the romantic
within me...as it can within you.
In my painting, Gone With The Wind, I wanted to capture the central romance, but also give
a small taste of the gentile old south. Fragrant flowers and lush rolling hills surround
Tara, the homestead of the O'Hara family, and serve as quiet sentinels to this way of
life. My painting is populated with favorite film characters and rendered in small
cinematic vignettes designed to capture all of the drama and nostalgia of this Hollywood
spectacular. I truly hope this painting delights all fans of Gone With The Wind. Beyond
this, I pray it reminds us all that true love does exist."
