World Wide Art, Inc., a renowned custom conservation framing and art gallery, has announced the availability of Thomas Kinkade's "This is Talladega" to the public.
The painting, which is Kinkade's second NASCAR masterpiece, features the late Dale Earnhardt reflecting the aggression and passion the racing legend was known for. Nicknamed "The Intimidator," Earnhardt was fearless in his racing style, which is obvious when one views the painting.
"Kinkade has really nailed the emotion of NASCAR with this piece. ‘This is Talladega’ captures the spirit and passion that racing fans feel for this one-of-a-kind sport," said David Wilfong, spokesperson for World-Wide-Art.com. "This painting captures an amazing moment in NASCAR history and is perfect for any motorsports fan, especially fans of Talladega and Dale Earnhardt."
Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light, is known for his hallmark ability to capture light with glowing, realistic highlights. Few artists are able to perfect this skill as Kinkade has in his work. The artist also has the distinction of being known as America’s most-collected living artist.
Kinkade tends to draw inspiration for his works from subjects that people can easily relate to, whether they are everyday scenery or beloved sporting events, like the moment captured in "This is Talladega." Rather than merely focus on the technical details of the settings he observes, the artist takes great care to preserve the spirit and the emotion of each moment. This effort is masterfully demonstrated in his latest release.
In "This is Talladega," Earnhardt’s black and red car, emblazoned with his No. 3, charges ahead of the pack at breakneck speed. Two other vehicles trail hopelessly behind, lingering several yards back in a haze of dust. The crowd is going wild and the sky itself almost seems gripped with anticipation, gleaming pink and azure while setting a dramatic backdrop for the scene.
"For millions of fans across the United States and around the world, NASCAR is an exciting and fun-packed sport," said Wilfong. "Kinkade has worked masterfully at capturing this energy, including the high-octane engines and excitement of the crowd at the famous Talladega Speedway."
The work takes on a special meaning for true Dale Earnhardt fans, who know that Talladega was the last race the driver won before his death at the 2001 Daytona 500. He remains a legend to NASCAR fans, with many considering him to be the greatest driver of all time.
