The Power and the Majesty

I like to think that water is alive with poetry and power of God’s creation. Yet, for all the awesome grandeur of the thundering falls hurtling down its sheer precipice in The Power and the Majesty, I also sense a profound peacefulness that is most reassuring.

Water can be powerful and majestic, and yet also be so calm and tranquil – which us why I believe that of the four ancient elements, water is the most impressive. I even included a trail on the right-hand side of The Power and the Majesty as both a physical access to the waterfall, and as a symbolic access to Heaven.

  • The Power and the Majesty is theĀ second painting in Thomas Kinkade’s Streams of Living Water Collection.
  • Inspired after visiting Yosemite, Thom takes a close look at Vernal Falls to capture the raw emotionĀ in The Power and the Majesty.
  • Thom included a trail in The Power and the Majesty to physically represent access to the waterfall, and to symbolically represent access to Heaven.
  • As Thom says, of the four ancient elements, water is the most impressive in its capability to be both calm and tranquil, yet powerful and majestic at times.
