Painter of Light

Thomas Kinkade—
The “Painter of Light.”

Prints of idyllic cottages,
bucolic garden gates,
famed for their painted highlights.
A warrior for light,
light to penetrate the darkness

Warm positive images,
cabin and nature scenes,
beautiful gardens,
classical cottages,
lighthouses and seascapes,
small town scenes.

Art is forever,
It goes front and center on your wall.
It’s shaping your life.
