The Blessings of Summer
When I was a lad, we had our choice of Arcadian swimming holes, deep and safe, framed by old trees and big diving rocks – it was heavenly.
The Blessings of Summer, third in my Blessings of the Seasons Collection, is my tribute to those long-ago summer days. I’ve added the picturesque stone mill with its water wheel because it makes the memory perfect.
People have asked me about the boy who looks ready to cast aside his pole and plunge into the cool waters with his dog. Is he a portrait of the artist as a young man? I suppose I could answer – but I’d rather you decide.
- The Blessings of Summer is the third painting in Thomas Kinkade’s Blessings of the Seasons Collection.
