Mountain Paradise

It is possible to embrace the world of our deepest dreams. I do that as an artist, and it is my fervent hope that canvases like my new Mountain Paradise enable you to do that as well.

My Mountain Paradise is set in one of God’s heroic mountain landscapes — I have found that I cannot dream anything grander than the glories He has created. Here is a rustic cabin nestled into a truly idyllic hideaway. A mountain stream cascades over an array of ancient stones, creating myriad waterfalls that sing their praise of the Lord in the voices of water. Perhaps the strumming of bluegrass music might add to the chorus as evening lingers — isn’t that a guitar and fiddle resting in the shadows of the cabin porch?

Access to my paradise is provided by an old wooden bridge. Intriguing trails and a waiting canoe entice the camper to explore the nearby hills by foot or water. A handsome stag and mate and a lively flock of wild turkeys attest to the abundance of wildlife; wild ducks drop in for a landing.

The light of sunset pours from the sky, painting the clouds and nearby hills with a heavenly radiance. My Mountain Paradise is truly my daydream of an idyllic mountain hideaway.

  • There are twelve hidden N’s in Mountain Paradise in honor of Thomas Kinkade’s wife of twenty-four years at the time of this painting, Nanette.
  • Thom has included some wonderful details in Mountain Paradise. Can you find the fiddle and guitar, the stag and the doe, and the flocks of wild turkeys and ducks?
  • Thom has painted Mountain Paradise as a daydream of the idyllic mountain hideaway…a cabin amidst God’s splendor, offering trails for exploring, a creek for fishing, a canoe for rowing, and the glowing lights of a warm cabin to return to at the end of the day.
