Artist:Thomas Kinkade Title: Stillwater Cottage Edition:: S/N Paper and Canvas Image size: 18x24 Paper (As Shown) with 12x16, and 25.5 x 34 Canvas Editions From Thomas Kinkade: The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not want... He leadeth me beside the still waters.
Still waters run deep; the waters of this crystal pool offer a balm to the soul. Here, in this tranquil glade, God's perfect peace reigns.
I have frequently tried to capture on canvas such refuges. Stillwater Cottage,which introduces my new Peaceful Cottages series, is, in a sense, the companion piece to a painting I did years ago entitled "Beside Still Waters". This cottage sits comfortably in its hushed setting, where no breeze rustles the leaves of the trees and the only motion is provided by the gracefully gliding geese.
I wanted Stillwater Cottage to come alive for you as a place of refuge. The light pouring from the windows suggests that a family dwells at peace within. Carefully observed details - the weathered brass bell over the door, the stone bench with an open family bible awaiting moments of quiet study, and an ancient rock retaining wall - give this cottage character.
The rich colors of sunset bathe the glade and the distant trees in glorious light. In this place, God is surely present; we feel the comfort and protection we can only know when we are in His hands.
