Pools of Serenity

It may be that all of us carry in our souls a memory of Eden, the glorious garden where we came to know our Creator. That could account for the attraction I’ve long felt for gardens – resplendent in riotous colors and tranquil in their shadowy private spaces. Nanette and I take advantage of the romance of gardens to enrich our love. We’ve sought out their sheltered nooks to meet and talk and dream and remember.

Pools of Serenity, second in The Garden of Prayer Collection, speaks to those personal associations… and to something more profound. I’ve reached into the core of my spiritual life to express what I can only call the wonderfully comforing friendship I feel with my God.

This serene haven – a breathtaking, mirror bright pool reflecting an abundance of flowers, embraced by the shelter of a monumental stone gazebo – expresses the “peace that passeth understanding” that rewards my communion with the divine. There is an air of breathless anticipation here…and up on the distant hill, is that a gentle stranger who awaits?

  • In an ongoing tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hidden fourteen N’s in Pools of Serenity.
  • With the first release in this collection, The Grden of Prayer, already sold out, this newest epic painting of Pools of Serenity is sure to be another best selling favorite among collectors.
  • The exquisite copper and stone gazebo that is featured in this collection is based on a real gazebo located on the grounds of a beautiful resort on Hawaiian island of Maui.
  • The mysterious, shadowy figure that first visited us in The Garden of Prayer is lurking again, just up the path, inviting us further into the garden. Who could it be?
  • The gentle murmur of water flowing into this tranquil reflecting pool is just the type of setting in which Thom and Nanette enjoy spending time.
