As young boys, growing up in Placerville, California, there were few things Thom and I loved more than going to our county's sole drive-in movie theater. Truly, the "Se Rancho Drive-In" forever held a place in Thom's heart and still holds one in mine. It was there that he and I first got to see all of the Disney Masterworks in animation. I have real and distinct memories of watching Pinocchio, 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book there, sitting next to my mother and brother, my eyes alight with interest. But the first film we saw at the "Se Rancho", the one that started our family tradition was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This movie has been beloved by audiences since 1937. It was recognized at the 11th Academy Awards as a pioneering achievement in filmmaking and Walt Disney received honorary Oscars, one full-sized and seven smaller versions, for his work.
Join us at The Thomas Kinkade Studios as we revisit this tale of an imperiled princess and her seven delightful and dedicated protectors. We worked hard to capture all of the major background elements of the film, from the Prince's castle to the cozy cottage to the jeweled mine. Further, we poured ourselves into capturing the personalities of each of the Seven Dwarfs as well as portraying the Queen in the form of the Witch and Snow White herself. All added to the monumental complexity of the painted effort. Still, and without hesitation I can say that despite the number of artistic responsibilities, it was a joyous task to complete. For all those involved with the Thomas Kinkade Company, for my family and for Thom himself, I thank you all for sharing the light.
