About the Art: A New Day at the Cinderella Castle was painted in celebration of Walt Disney World's 35th Anniversary. Thom has incorporated seven N's in A New Day at the Cinderella Castle as a continued tribute to his love
for his wife Nanette. Cinderella Castle was completed in July 1971, after about 18 months of construction, and reaches to a height of 189 feet tall — nearly twice the size of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. When the sun sets, the castle is illuminated in 16.7 million colors, thanks to Vari-Lite intelligent lighting fixtures placed on different castle levels and surrounding the castle. The castle itself plays a role in the Magic Kingdom's fireworks show, in which it changes color in synchronization with the dramatic music of the display. A New Day at the Cinderella Castle brings you back to all those magical moments in your childhood.
From Thom: Two of the dream-memories we take from childhood on our life’s journey, if we are fortunate, are the wonder and excitement of Disney World and the soaring majesty of castles. Perhaps that is why the Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World, Orlando, is such an enchanting inspiration to young and old. My family makes a pilgrimage to this favorite spot on every visit. This year, I went in my imagination to explore a vision of the regal castle gently kissed by the golden light of a perfect day. A New Day at the Cinderella Castle discovers a morning every bit as festive and delightful as the castle itself. A double rainbow arcs over the towering castle; fluffy clouds dapple its many towers with light and shade. Lavish, rainbow-hued trees and shrubs frame the building; quaint gas lamps dance along the walkway.
I used a more whimsical style in keeping with the subject: Is Bambi on the lawn? Tinkerbell above the castle spires?
The Ugly Duckling in the pond? You decide. -Thomas Kinkade
