Glory of Evening

I painted Glory of Morning and Glory of Evening as a pair. Both explore the subtleties of transitional light, when the sky flames with a special radiance, when colors are heightened and shadows dance on the ground.

Glory of Evening is as different from its companion painting as sunset is from sunrise. The dust of a busy day, and its low-lying clouds reflect the violet radiance colors the garden flowers, deepening their hues. Such glorious evenings as this lay a purple cloak upon the land…and every home becomes a castle.

  • In an ongoing tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hidden two N’s in Glory of Evening.
  • Glory of Evening is the second painting in Thom’s newest series – the Moments of Glory Collection.
  • Thom’s Glory of Evening is sold as a pair with Glory of Morning – this duo of paintings were awarded the Collector Editions Award for Excellence in 1993.
  • The set Glory of Morning and Glory of Evening is the only time that Thom has ever painted a duet piece with a cottage at dawn and a cottage at dusk.
