Spring Gate

Since I painted Autumn Gate early in my career, I’ve been fascinated with the inviting mystery of gates. I’m returning to the subject – in a new season – with my heroically-sized Spring Gate. I’ve portrayed a massive wrought iron gate framed by weathered stone pillars that suggest the rich human history of the grounds beyond. It’s spring, and nature rejoices at its rejuvenation of springtime flora with a lavish abundance of flowers.

  • In an ongoing and loving tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hidden seven N’s in Spring Gate.
  • Spring Gate is the first painting in Thom’s new series – the Spring Gate Collection.
  • Ever since Thom painted Autumn Gate, he has been fascinated with inviting mystery of gates.
  • He painted springtime flora in Spring Gate – including delphiniums, hollyhocks, dogwoods, and roses.
