"Driving the old Yosemite Valley ring road, I found myself in a familiar spot. I brought my paint and canvas onto that inspiring boulder, and, in little more than an hour of feverish, inspired work created Yosemite Valley. A powerful insight struck me as I carried the canvas to my car: these mountains are nothing less than an image of God’s grace. So returning to my studio, I used myYosemite Valleystudy as a foundation for a major studio composition, The Mountains Declare His Glory." --Thomas Kinkade
Yosemite Valley is a plein air study that depicts the Yosemite Valley as seen from a little known location called "Artist's Point," named in tribute to the many 19th century artists who favored it as a sketching ground.In 1989, the National Park System selected Yosemite Valley as their official print.
