Lakeside Manor

“In my Father’s house are many mansions…” ~ John 14:2

In His intriguing account of the promise of Paradise, Jesus proclaimed that each of us will find a welcoming home amidst its “many mansions.” In my new Mansions in Paradise Series, I turn my artist’s eye away from the humble cottages of village and town and toward more majestic dwellings. My goal in this series is to create mansions truly worthy of a paradise, whether earthly or heavenly.

My vision of Paradise includes the idyllic, tranquil landscapes that I like to think of as “Heaven on Earth.” What could be more sublime than a serene lake reflecting the majesty of the heavens in its mirror-like surface? The gardens of Paradise are lavish with flowers; the weather surely, is what we like to think of as “a perfect spring day.” In my Paradise, radiant sunsets lasts for hours.

At once majestic and comfortably human in scale, Lakeside Manor as the first in my new series, nestles along the shore of a cobalt blue lake. Here is a grand mansion complete with cozy nooks where you might comfortably settle in for a warming cup of tea or a long evening’s conversation. A weathered old stone bridge invites visitors to stroll the verdant grounds, while the brook at the left provides a tranquil background murmur sure to make the spirit soar

  • There are seven N’s hidden in Lakeside Manor as Thomas Kinkade’s everlasting tribute to his loving wife Nanette.
  • Lakeside Manor is the first in Thom’s newest series, Mansions in Paradise. In this series, Thom depicts the idyllic and tranquil landscapes that are his own vision of “Heaven on Earth.”
  • Let your imagination explore the tranquility of Lakeside Manor. Imagine the cozy nooks within this grand mansion, where you might snuggle down with a warm cup of tea and a good book, or one of the elegant parlors where one might enjoy an evening of conversation and friends by a roaring fire.
  • Smoke curls from the chimneys of this stately, yet inviting, edifice, beckoning visitors to enter in or simply enjoy the verdant landscape.
