What to Know Before Buying a Thomas Kinkade Painting

As you probably already know, Thomas Kinkade Studios offers a wide range of paintings inspired by both classic and modern beloved stories. However, inexperienced buyers may be unfamiliar with how many options the studio truly offers.

The studio typically offers four sizes of each painting: 12″ x 18″, 18″ x 27″, 24″ x 36″, 28″ x 42″. Original paintings can be purchased unframed or within one of eighteen frames ranging in price from $180 – $300. For those seeking one of these captivating works but don’t want to break the bank, you can opt for a wrapped canvas reproduction or paper print!

Thomas Kinkade Studios also offers a variety of “editions”, which offer different levels of detail and limited quantities.

Ranging from least expensive to most expensive, the edition levels available for the newly released paintings are as follows: Standard Numbered Canvas (SN), Artist Proof Canvas (AP), Gallery Proof Canvas (GP), Publisher Proof Canvas (PP), and Estate Edition (EE).

New Thomas Kinkade Paintings at D23

Kinkade began working with The Walt Disney Company in 2005, when he was first commissioned to create an artwork that captured the spirit of magical family memories for Disneyland’s 50th anniversary. The painting depicted families gathering around the Partners statue in front of Sleeping Beauty castle, ready to embark on a day of whimsy and magic.

Since laying eyes on that first collaboration between Disney and Kinkade, fans have coveted the inspired works that Thomas Kinkade created. After his passing in 2012, a small team of painters mastered the Kinkade technique, carrying on his legacy and teachings through his studio. The premiere of their latest works was this weekend at the D23 convention in Anaheim – but if you weren’t able to make it to the con, we’ve got you covered!

“Disney Frozen” by Thomas Kinkade Studios

Fans have long awaited the arrival of a Kinkade painting inspired by Disney’s Frozen – and rightfully so, considering it’s been nearly a decade since its release (where does the time go?)! While I recover from feeling old, take a look above at this beautifully illustrated scene.

During twilight, Anna and Kristoff lead Olaf and Sven through the Norwegian tundra, searching for Elsa. Golden sunlight peeks through onto the purple-hued fallen snow as they look for the runaway queen. The artists behind this scene really captured the essence of the film, including Anna’s persevering love for her sister and determination to save her kingdom.

Pricing for available prints and original artworks ranges as follows:

🎨 Limited Edition Paper: $185 – $475

🖼️ Limited Edition Canvas: $650 – $6,350

“Disney Moana” by Thomas Kinkade Studios

Moana Thomas Kinkade Disney Painting

See the line where the sky meets the sea? That’s where Thomas Kinkade studio artists painted that beautiful burst of sunlight that shines through the entire piece, piercing Moana’s sails and the majestic Polynesian mountains that cradle the waters she surfs across. Pua and Te Fiti watch from the shore as Moana and Maui sail off toward their next adventure.

🖌️ Wrapped Canvas: $59 – $99

In this spooky piece, the iconic pair strolls down a cobblestone path in their Hallow’s Eve best. Mickey and Donald’s nephews trail behind them, seemingly leaving the steps of a haunted house where they’ve looted some candy. The sight of glowing jack-o-lanterns and rickety scarecrows compels the viewer to imagine the scent of fallen autumn leaves and pumpkin-spiced treats!

“On the Run” by Thomas Kinkade Studios

On the Run Star Wars Thomas Kinkade Disney Painting

Princess Leia Organa is one of the original Disney girl bosses. Before Mulan, Merida, and Tiana, there was Leia. When her character first made its debut in 1977, she was a rare depiction of a fierce, brave, and kindhearted heroine.

Kinkade artists have depicted her bravery perfectly in a moment of swift action. In the painting, she swings away from stormtroopers on a spaceship helmed by the Galactic Empire, beams from blasters flying around her! Sure, Luke Skywalker is shown in the piece too – but we know who the real star is.

Pricing for available prints and original artworks ranges as follows:

🖌️ Wrapped Canvas: $89

🎨 Limited Edition Paper: $185 – $390

🖼️ Limited Edition Canvas: $650 – $4,600

“The Mandalorian™ – A Force Within” by Thomas Kinkade Studios

The Mandalorian Moana Thomas Kinkade Disney Painting

Allow Kinkade legacy artists to take you on a galactic journey far, far away when you gaze at this incredible Mandalorian-inspired painting. This piece is a welcome addition to their Mandalorian series, which is a must-buy for any Star Wars buff!

The artwork features Grogu (known by adoring fans as “Baby Yoda”) atop the Jedi seeing stone as he calls out to all Jedi in the galaxy. Large stone rock faces surround the area as a powerful blue field of power engulfs Grogu’s adorable little body. It’s incredible how something can be so cute and so majestic at the same time.

Pricing for available prints and original artworks ranges as follows:

🖌️ Wrapped Canvas: $89

🎨 Limited Edition Paper: $185 – $390

🖼️ Limited Edition Canvas: $650 – $4,600
