Artist: Thomas Kinkade Title: Church of the Wayfarer About the Art : Released May 2005. Church of the Wayfarer was founded in 1904 as the first protestant church built in the historic community of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A more quaint seaside village you will never find; Carmel-by-the-Sea is known worldwide for its art galleries,
restaurants and exceptional bakeries, not to mention miles of white sand beaches. Thom’s artwork was first exhibited in the galleries of Carmel in the mid-1980s. In the center of town, the Mediterranean gardens surrounding Church of the Wayfarer have served as a peaceful refuge for thousands of visitors and townspeople for the last 100 years. Medium: Limted Edition Canvas (select Size and Framng options above) Image Dimensions: 16" x 12" and 24" x 18" From Thomas Kinkade : I painted this grand old Carmel landmark in the glorious light of an autumn morning,when
the radiance seemed to kiss the shadows away. “Pause in your travels ye wayfarer, and celebrate the Lord in the beauty of His creation.” That is the invitation Carmel’s Church of the Wayfarer has offered the countless visitors who have come to this tourist haven in the century since its construction in 1904. Who knows the thousands of celebrations of joy and sorrow that have been held within these walls…the weddings, the baptisms, the memorial services that accompany the beginning and end of life?
I set up my easel to paint the grand old chapel in the glorious light of an autumn morning. The radiance seemed to kiss the shadows away from the whitewashed walls. Monterey pine trees form a festive garland surrounding the church’s craftsman style cupola and steeple. The church is framed by the famous Biblical Garden on its left, which showcases many plants from the holy land, and the equally famed Cottage restaurant, where my family feasted as I worked. My Church of the Wayfarer celebrates one hundred years of a grand California tradition. If your own travels bring you to the Pacific coast sometime, perhaps you too will pause and celebrate the beauty of this enchanting landmark.
