Lingering Dusk

Since I first picked up a brush, I have been interested in the simplicity and purity of life as it was once lived by America’s native people. Even before I discovered that one of my lifelong themes would be the pleasures of the simple life, I celebrated those delights in a series of paintings featuring the Indian tribes with majestic mountains bathed in the dramatic light of sunset, humble homes nestled in a tranquil natural setting. They’re all here in Lingering Dusk.

For me, Lingering Dusk is an evocation of the ultimate coziness of life. Imagine a world so devoid of frills, so self-contained, that a family’s possessions could be packed up and moved at will. This is the life that God truly meant for His people. That is why I’ve made the campfire a modest reflection of the glorious radiance of the illuminated mountainside. As light pours down from Heaven to illuminate te mountain peaks, it embraes the modest Indian camp and it surely reflects God’s plan for His people as well. With this piece, I wanted to portray the harmony of man and nature such as is rarely seen in our busy world.

  • Lingering Dusk is one of very few of Thomas Kinkade’s works that feature Native Amerian life.
  • Painted in Thom’s earlier years, Lingering Dusk was published under Thom’s Archive Collection.
  • Perfect with any decor, the luminous mountainside in this painting is sure to bring a feeling of tranqility and warmth to all that admire it.
  • Lingering Dusk, like many of Thom’s earlier works, helped to form his “simpler life” theme so evident in all of his paintings.
