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.
The City of Lights inspires many memories for me, both as an artist and as a romantic. Wandering the city of Paris I was greeted by the same boulevards that inspired master impressionists a century ago. I couldn’t resist donning my beret and attempting to embody their artistic vision of color and light.
In Morning on the Boulevard I create a mood of classic impressionism with a subject befitting the French masters of the past. This is a sunny summer morning that suggests a “boulevard of dreams” from long ago.
