THOMAS KINKADE “The Light of Freedom” SALVATION ARMY/ Limited Edition Print. 2001, Signed by Artist in Gold (21″ x 25″ Framed in Dark Cherry Wood, Matted, Print measures 16″ x 20″). Light of Freedom, History. When America faced some of the biggest struggles in its history, Thom stepped forward to help Americans who were suffering. After the tragedy of 9/11, he painted The Light of Freedom and The Season of Giving. The proceeds from these two pieces were donated to the Salvation Army’s Ground Zero Relief Fund. For my painting The Light of Freedom, I turned once again to my faith in God, my love for my fellow man, and my pride in America and what we stand for. The billowy clouds in the heavens remind us that despite our challenges, God surely has shed His Grace on this land. Now is the time when each of us must summon our courage and strength so that, the Light of Freedom will forever illuminate this glorious country. I do a lot of work with charities. A work of art is something that can embody the message of a ministry, of a non-profit. I did a painting called Bridge of Faith that a lot of people have been inspired by, and it was used as a fundraiser for World Vision. We set up a program where people could sponsor a child for a year and receive a copy of this print for free. So far over 62,000 kids have been sponsored. It’s very exciting. Recently we linked with the Salvation Army and raised a little over two million dollars for the relief effort after 9/11. It was through a print I did of the American flag at sunset, a very dramatic painting called The Light of Freedom. I really think God gives us our creative talents as a tool to bring his light to the world. The darkness of the world is so evident–you can see that in the headlines every day. The only light that shines is God’s love, his love for people all over, and it can be embodied in painting. The painting goes in the home and it’s in the home forever. It becomes a permanent part part of that home, of that family. It’s an inspiration to people–it reminds them that the world is not all ugliness and darkness, that there’s God’s light. Did you paint the flag directly in response to 9/11? I remember on the 12th I went into the studio and became almost like a recluse. I locked the door and didn’t come out for several days. I was so horrified and astounded by the event, like most people were. I wanted to make a difference. I remember thinking I’m not a firefighter, I’m not in the military, I’m not a relief worker–but I can come to the studio and make a difference through my art. I could only contribute what I had to give. The night before I’d had a vision of this flag flying over the New York City skyline. The painting was anointed by God from the very first brushstroke. I began work and couldn’t stop, and it just came together so beautifully at the end. And I was not sure how God would use this painting but I created prints from it. We’d been in discussion with the Salvation Army over other projects, and suggested that we use this as a fundraiser. Thousands of people wrote in from all over the country offering donations to the Salvation Army, and in return they got the print. In the past you’ve said you paint for battle-weary people? This makes it literally true. In the case of the battles we most often fight, it’s the battle for sanity, family, for our value system, for our faith. There are forces throughout our world that would rob us of the joy of life. We welcome any reasonable offers on this item. Part of the proceeds will go directly to the Salvation Army.
