+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"In Emerald Valley I paint an ideal vision of the “auld sod”
that I like to believe could still be found, if you knew where to
look. God’s heavenly light pours from the skies, illuminating a
landscape so verdantly green that it suggests the bounty of nature
unspoiled. It seems in Ireland storms are eternally either passing by
or roaring in.
In Emerald Valley I create a village scene that suggests a
timeless way of life. Here dirt farmers haul a freshly harvested load
of hay for the livestock; here grannies take over the child rearing,
while mothers tend to the domestic chores essential for survival in
the rugged terrain.
Rocks are ripped from the earth to build roads and fences, the stone
bridge heralds this rustic heritage. Waterways fill the valleys,
making for a play of light between lakes and sky."
