My leisure stroll takes me to paths of wondrous visions. Whether in the morning reddish sunrise or by the early evening golden haze sunset, I am mesmerized from the sight and beauty I behold.
My senses awaken from the scent of the autumn morning dew and my eyes are in amazement from the auburn leaves too. When frosty winter approaches, I breathe in the chilly air and my brown-gloved hands play in the snowy banks by the river at the bay near the home with Christmas decorations for the 25th of day.
At the spring gardens an astonishing site of lavender, mauve and pink flowers flowing through the crimson stone paths and into the soft white gazebo too.
The warm summer is an array of lushes green leaves and songbirds too. Blue Robins glide with ease above the brick cottage and porches filled with summertime garnished flowers.
All these imagery cultivates the senses and mind by the master artist himself, Thomas Kinkade and also known as the “Painter of Light.” His unique talent of using light with fine distinct brush strokes levels the portrait scene from night to day and then day to night. Your senses are overwhelmed with enriched striking colors and almost life like villages and cities. Taking you to a far away land or time of innocence, tranquility, and leisure. Thomas Kinkade compels the viewer to step within the oil painting and join in the celebrations of the children & people in the snow during Christmas morn, or stroll through a paved green village in the early morn. Feel the rain drops on your head and face or cars slush and splash your feet as the motorist drives by on the busy streets. Lighthouses come alive in the storm with depiction of dreary and blue ocean waves.
Thomas Kinkade was born in 1958 from a small town of Placerville, California. Brought up poor and improvised, his artistic talent was a means of escape & upcoming victory for Thomas Kinkade. Since the age of 4, his artistic ability was prevalent in his drawings, and by the age of 16, a gifted oil painter with the guidance of a professional and skilled painter, Glen Wessels. You may read further on Kinkade’s biography and journey as a thriving painter in oils and art publisher at the following link: “Art By Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light.”
