A Quiet Evening

” A quiet evening, a peaceful time, a life worth living, because you’re mine” ~ Thomas Kinkade

The heart has its special places: quiet retreats, fragrant with the sweet perfume of flowers, bathed in the romantic light of sunset, soothed by the music of a laughing brook and droning bees. Places made possible by the precious gift of love.

I compose my quatrain to remind myself that two people who care for each other can create a very private world, colored by shared memory. Truly a place in the heart. The though delights me. It has inspired me to create a three-piece painting collection celebrating the creative power of love. Each painting illuminates a line in the poem: “A Quiet Evening,” “A Peaceful Time,” and for “a life worth living,” I created Moonlight Cottage as the third and final in my Places in the Heart Collection.

We begin with the passionate fire of sunset, the graceful shelter of a magnificent weeping willow beside a quaint stone cottage p the Edenic tranquility of a pristine stream flowing through a lavish flower garden. Here is A Quiet Evening, born in the hearts of lovers.

  • Thomas Kinkade has hidden eight N’s in A Quiet Evening, as a loving tribute to his beautiful wife Nanette.
  • A Quiet Evening is being released in three sizes, allowing you to easily display this inviting setting in any home or office.
  • A Quiet Evening is the second traditional cottage to be released for the entire year of 1998 and is the first release in Thom’s new romantic series, Places in the Heart.
  • The bright flowers and stunning sunset create a romantic setting for A Quiet Evening, inviting you into the cozy cottage for a rest by the fire.
