About the Art: Cobblestone Evening is the seventh and final image in the Cobblestone Lane series, which began with Cobblestone Lane. Thom has placed a total of twelve N's in Cobblestone Evening as a gesture of his ongoing love for his lovely wife Nanette. The English Cotswolds of the Cobblestone Lane series are one of Thom and Nanette's favorite destinations. They visited there in the summer of 2004. The fisherman on the bridge of Cobblestone Evening was inspired by a fishing sanctuary located on a country estate in Fairford, in the Cotswolds. Thom and Nanette used to have picnics on the lawns of the
fishing preserve and would watch the fishermen from the Edwardian bridge. Thom has always been drawn to sheep. He sees them as a symbol of village life and a true feature of England.
From Thom: There are inspiring places I return to time and again in my mind. The English Cotswolds, which represent for me a simple, profoundly human, and deeply spiritual way of life, are one such favorite destination. From our first stop at Cobblestone Lane, we’ve followed a meandering footpath to a bridge, a brook, and a mill, considering at every turn the nature of time and the ways we can live in harmony with a world whose rhythms are utterly graceful and slow.
Throughout the series, I’ve imagined that our journey would end at just such a destination as we discover in
Cobblestone Evening. We’ve come full circle with this classic English village, which returns us to our imagined
brook and bridge, and to some of the humble, utterly charming stone cottages we’ve visited along the way.
Fittingly, our ramble ends at just that breathless hour when the plump trout are biting in the brook, and stillness
wraps the land in a fleecy blanket of perfect peace.
Grazing sheep symbolize the bucolic peacefulness of a pastoral scene that is best enjoyed in a sumptuous vision
like that present in Cobblestone Evening. This journey is at an end, but we know that others await. - Thomas Kinkade
