Stillwater Bridge

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green Pastures;

He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul…” Psalm 23

The cooling, tranquil feeling of resting beside still waters…what trouble or pain could not be hushed by such moments? And yet, in the rushing of our lives, each of us at times seem to prefer the raging torrents to the quiet brook – why else wouldn’t we seek daily those waters that are still? Perhaps that’s why we need a Shepherd. Who else loves His sheep enough to gently lead them to pastures green and waters tranquil?

In Sillwater Bridge, I wanted to capture th idea of a wondrous, relaxing place. A place that would invite the admirer to take a leisurely, much needed stroll along this calming stream and leave the hustle and bustle of the “real world” far behind. Still water – to me – symbolize God’s ability to see through our soul. My white and pink dogwood trees symbolize purity and passion, respectfully.

The first painting in my Sweetheart Gardens Collection – Stillwater Bridge is an attempt to reflect and portray waters that are still and inviting. I hope his painting brings you the same feeling of peacefulness that is has brought me; and I hope that you can linger a moment or two!

  • In an ongoing, loving tribute to his wife Nanette, Thomas Kinkade has hiddn seven N’s in Stillwater Bridge.
  • Stillwater Bridge is the first painting in the Sweetheart Gardens Collection. Featuring a romantic, softly litarchway, this newest painting is a fine addition to this popular Thom theme.
  • Roughly based on a real bridge in England that is similar to Broadwater Bridge. Look closely – Thom even painted in a figure by the lantern in the middle of Stillwater Bridge.
  • With the winding brook that beautifully mirrors the vivid flora as it gently moves through the hazy woods, and the broad palette of colors found in this painting, Stillwater Bridge will add warmth to any room in the home.
