Thomas Kinkade Honors Red Sox™ Nation with Fenway Park™ Painting
America’s Most Beloved Artist™ Paints America’s Most Beloved Ballpark :: Historic Home of 2007 World Series Champions™ Now a Kinkade Collectible
MORGAN HILL, CA – Thomas Kinkade, America’s Most Beloved Artist, has tipped his cap to the 2007 World Series Champions Boston Red Sox and baseball fans everywhere with a unique rendition of historic Fenway Park, America’s most beloved ballpark, the Thomas Kinkade Company announced today.
Painted on location two weeks ago at the 95-year-old home of the Red Sox, Kinkade’s homage to Fenway Park is now available as a 16” by 20” commemorative limited edition print for $79 unframed, $179.00 framed. It may be purchased by calling 1-888-374-4411 or by visiting www.RedSoxPrint.com.
“Fenway Park is the quintessential painting for me in sports imagery,” said Kinkade, world renowned as the “Painter of Light”™ whose works are in some 12 million American homes. “I love the pageantry of sports and the history of baseball. The American pastime celebrates the good in life. Fenway is the ultimate extension of my value system.”
Kinkade visited the park for the first time on October 21, the final day of this year’s American League Championship Series, at the invitation of Major League Baseball®. He set up his easel both inside the park before the fans arrived for the dramatic seventh game of the ALCS, and later outside the entrance to the park on Yawkey Way.
Fenway Park opened in 1912 and is the oldest of all current Major League Baseball parks. Rich in tradition and lore, it is famous for its left field wall – the “Green Monster” – and the exploits of such legendary players as Cy Young, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski.
Kinkade, a longtime baseball fan and the most collected artist in American history, said the experience of combining his love of sports with his passion for depicting the “best and brightest life has to offer” has inspired him to paint other iconic ballparks and sports venues in the months ahead.
