Graceland's 50th Anniversary Painting?

On the web we found this update on the unveiling of painter Thomas Kinkade's painting of Elvis' Graceland mansion which is scheduled on March 24, 2007 as part of Graceland's 50th anniversary. Kinkade was chosen by Elvis Presley Enterprises to create a commemorative painting of Graceland in celebration of Presley's purchase of the historic home 50 years ago and to celebrate the 25 years that Graceland has been open to the public. Kinkade will appear at The Light & The Legend event at the Gibson Beale Street Showcase on Saturday, March 24 from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. During the event, collectors will be able to view Kinkade's original painting, "Graceland, 50th Anniversary." Priscilla Presley will also be there.

I agree with Jth that seeing them close up with the human eyes would give us more detail, but none the less a great attempt I think.

I liked the other one better - but that's just my two cents. If I would see this painting with my two eyes (instead of on an internet website) it might be better

The painting shown here a few days prior to this one was the result of the “plein air” study Kinkade made in September while visiting Graceland.

Is he going to bring this out as a "Paint by number?" :}

I would guess he would paint several different views and select the one he liked most. This is much better than the version shown a few days ago.

IF this is the finished product I like this much better than the "work in progress" shown in an earlier story. I would buy a framed copy of this if I could afford it.

Hang on, what happened to the painting shown on the news story dated 23 February entitled "Kinkade Graceland Painting"? Did he rub it out and start again? If he did, it was a mistake.
