Art Notes:  “You’re Mufasa’s boy!” That exclamation is the seminal moment on which this magnificent story of destiny, balance, and majesty turns and is one of my favorite lines in this mostmoving of tales. Encapsulated in this statement is the affirmation of Simba’s rightful position as heir and king. Yet despite his pedigree, Simba, besieged by imagined peccadillos and guilt ridden, leaves the comfort and security of his home to make his own way in life.  After all, was it not he whose cavalier behavior caused the death of his beloved father…running made sense and so he fled. Yet Rafiki would argue that you can’t outrun destiny…a force whose role is ever present in this amazing journey evidenced by Simba’s fortuitous encounter with two unlikely characters that would preserve Simba’s life, teaching him to survive in the jungle, and whose friendship and support would eventually pave the wayto his long awaited coronation. Moved by his profound love for Nala, and Pumbaa’s and Timon’s unwavering support, Simba summons the courage to embrace his destiny and take his rightful place at Pride Rock; thus completing the circle of life, restoring balance to the majestic African plains, and establishing himself in the long line of kings whose long departed watchful eyes look down approvingly on his ascension.

As I painted my homage to this amazing story, I could not help but be moved by the intricate interplay between all of the magnificent creatures under Simba's domain. I imagined a lush, colorful, and bountiful African plain rightfully reestablished to its splendor after Simba vanquished Scar and his comedic, yet treacherous, hyenas each now forlorn in their punishment. The multitudes of animals have been summoned to pay tribute to Simba's new baby and their future regent as they wait under a spectacular sky illuminated in great anticipation. The world is as it should be…in harmony and perfectly balanced. Simba's heir is exalted by Rafiki and proudly symbolizes what awaits when destiny is embraced, challenges faced, and one summons the courage to stand in the spotlight of providence. I trust that this image will both remind you of this fantastic story and its amazing characters and, most importantly, move you to face the future irrespective of history's impasses knowing that the watchful and approving eye of the King is content as you embrace your place in the circle of life." - Thomas Kinkade / Disney®, The Lion King®, and Thomas Kinkade Studios® are all registered trademarks.  Disney elements are copyrighted by Disney.

Painting Description:  Thomas Kinkade Studios Limited Edition Paintings combine old world craftsmanship with the finest materials and latest production technologies to produce extraordinary canvas artwork.  The process captures not only the color and mood of the original painting, but the actual brushwork as well.  The image is reproduced on acid free, museum quality canvas with superior, long-life pigment inks, and then hand stretched on a hardwood frame.  Every piece is hand-retouched by skilled artisans, giving the painting a look almost identical to the artist's on-easel original.  Vibrant colors, rich textures and color tones accurate to the original brushstrokes are the hallmarks of your finished piece.  Each painting comes with a matching Certificate of Authenticity for your permanent records.  Made in the USA.

Edition Information:  There are five limited editions available: Standard Numbered (S/N), Gallery Proof (G/P), Artist Proof (A/P), Publisher Proof (P/P), and Examination Proof (E/P).  Some artworks, like this one, will aslo have an additional Atelier National (A/N) 40" x 60" edition.  The A/N level is known as the Epic or Monumental sized Canvas and it is perfect for an expansive wall space.  Each limited edition painting is created one at a time, after it is ordered, to ensure uniform color quality.  Once the number of paintings allocated to a specific size and edition are sold out there will be no more made with that same edition criteria.

Notes:

  1. The S/N, A/P, P/P, and E/P level canvases are all hand highlighted and numbered, and they look identical when finished.  The only thing that changes per level is the number of copies assigned to each level. When the artwork is first released, the S/N Level is the most affordable option because it has the largest number of copies available.
  2. The G/P level is also hand highlighted and numbered and it looks identical to the other levels, except for the very small, unique gold foil Remarque stamped on the front of the image.  This remarque relates uniquely to the subject matter of the painting in some way and changes from painting to painting.  For instance on the Snow White painting the remarque was a gold apple.
  3. The A/N Edition is the designation for the 40" x 60" Monumental Sized painting.  Each Atelier National canvas is hand-highlighted and numbered similar to the other editions and is designated with the letters A/N.
  4. On the front of every Limited Edition Painting there is a small designation that records the edition purchased (S/N), and the exact number you purchased out of the total edition size (ex. 89/125).  The certificate of authenticity will also record this information.
