Artist: Thomas Kinkade
Title: Autumn on Mackinac Island
Size(s): 12x16, 18x24 (Paper and Canvas), 25.5x34, 30x40
Publish Date: December 2005
About the Edition: Just off the coast of Michigan, Mackinac Island has been a favorite vacation destination since the Victorian era, with the opening of the famed Grand Hotel in 1887. The Grand, seen in the distance,may be familiar to many as the setting of the film Somewhere in Time. Visitors will notice the absence of all automobiles on Mackinac Island! Thom has included two horse-drawn carriages in his painting Autumn on Mackinac Island as recognition of this charming tradition. There are 7 hidden N's in Autumn on Mackinac Island, in honor of Nanette, Thom's lovely wife. He has also named the fudge shop “Nan's” as part of the tribute to her that appears in each and every one of his paintings! Thom included some whimsical details in this beautiful rendering of Mackinac Island—a fluffy dog chasing the horse-drawn carriage and a cat about to saunter across the lane. The flag flying from the porch of the hotel in the distance is the tiniest Thom has ever painted.Take a look at those microscopic red stripes in the body of the flag—he had to use a magnifying glass to paint them! From Thom: Life is filled with quiet surprises. One such delight can be found in an autumn weekend on Mackinac Island, that charming retreat from modern living nestled in the sparkling waters between Lakes Michigan and Huron. The only way to reach Mackinac Island is aboard ferry, and once you've arrived, the only modes of transport are walking, bicycles, and romantic horse-drawn carriages. No automobiles or motorcycles disturb the enchanting timelessness.

In autumn, crisp beds of red geraniums highlight the lush greenery, while the heady aroma of chocolate fudge blankets the island. The array of charming Victorian homes and hotels, crowned by the magnificent Grand Hotel transports us into centuries past. The nostalgic mood is further underscored by musket fire echoing from the restored Ft. Mackinac.

In Autumn on Mackinac Island, carriages clatter down the enchanting lane while bicycles weave languidly to and fro. Nan's Fudge Shop (a tribute to my wife's famous fudge recipe) invites us to sample the island's chief product, while the Grand Hotel peeks proudly from behind the autumn foliage of the trees at the left of the lane. The steeple of the famous Little Stone Church rises above the trees at the right of the composition and geraniums festoon the town with patches of red.

Now, with Autumn on Mackinac Island, you can enjoy the season of plenty in this charming, nostalgic haven all year 'round. -Thomas Kinkade
