The dappled morning sunlight casts a serene glow over the chapel and nearby homes. The stillness in the air is broken by the sounds of birds at the birdfeeder built by the children who attend the Sunday School. A melodic psalm can be heard from inside the chapel as the nearby bunnies enjoy a munch in the growing grass.
Thomas Kinkade loved to capture small town life by putting paint to canvas. Even as a young man, he would come to believe in an idyllic world where love, hope and family came first. Thom always carried a small notebook, and a stub of a pencil, that he would use to sketch the scenes he came across. Over time, these travels and sketches would be the inspiration that would become the masterworks his collectors love.
Inspired by a Thomas Kinkade original unfinished oil painting, Serenity Chapel by Thomas Kinkade Studios evokes all the timeless elements he loved to reflect in his paintings.
