Rose Gate by Thomas Kinkade --- In the first of a trio of coordinated paintings in honor of my beautiful baby, Winsor, we enter through the floral opulence of Rose Gate. Two ancient stone columns guard the entrance; a weathered copper plaque bears the crest of the manor, an interlocking "W & M." — Thomas Kinkade
The Garden of Hope by Thomas Kinkade. Hope is the great gift of a loving God. In The Garden of Hope, second in my Gardens of Light collection, I celebrate the bountiful blessing that is a hopeful spirit. Radiance bathes a garden in the woods, pouring down in a flood of light upon an ancient stone urn that is a vessel of hope. T. K.
Sweetheart Gazebo  ©Thomas Kinkade "For me, "Sweetheart Gazebo" is a modest palace of love. At once intimate and expansive, private and open, this most romantic shelter presents an image of the dual nature of love. Like the gazebo, love is private, comfortable, comforting; at the same time, love embraces the world and opens to its beauties."
First Snow 1982 "When a rare First Snow fell on the brilliant autumn woods near my home town of Placerville, I rejoiced. The air was radiant with the lights of two seasons - the flaming golds and muted greens of the autumn woods, and the dazzling white of a new winter snow. The transition from one season to another is filled with wonder. When, as in First Snow, the dramatic change is the work of a single night, the effect can be startling and thrilling." -Thomas Kinkade #thomaskinkade
