Beside Still Waters
There is a wonderful hideaway I visit only in may art, bathed in a silvery light, ablaze with flowers of every hue and description, silent save for the murmur of gently rushing waters. The title of this painting is taken from The Bible – Psalm 23:2 – as Beside Still Waters is my vision of what the Garden of Eden must have been like.
As a Christian, I speculate on the mystery and wonder of God’s creation when nature was perfect and unspoiled. As an artist, I try to convey my own wonder at the richness and variety I still find in the natural world. I believe Eden to be a wonderful hideaway bathed in a silvery light, ablaze with flowers of every hue and description – a silent save for the murmur of gently rushing waters. I’m not sure to this day whether it’s a dream or a memory.
- In an ongoing tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hidden two N’s in Beside Still Waters.
- Beside Still Waters is what Thom envisions the Garden of Eden to look like, and so took the name from The Bible under Psalm 23:2.
- To this day, Thom himself is not sure if the image in Beside Still Waters is from a memory, or a dream.
