++++ About the Publisher Proof Edition ~~

Publisher Proofs (P/P)
The Publisher Proofs are limited to 12% of the Standard Numbered total edition size, making the edition scarcer and more desired. These lithographs on canvas are individually hand highlighted. P/Ps are designated with the letters P/P during the numbering process. Each piece is individually hand-numbered with an P/P designation after the print number to correspond with the certificate. These are considered highly collectible due to the very small amounts made and these sell out faster than any other edition as a general rule.

+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"Hometown. It can live in the mind as a series of lovely vignettes -- a street lush with puddles, a Friday evening stroll into town square, a wedding at a wayside chapel -- all bathed in the sunset glow of sweet memory. That's what my Hometown Memories series, inspired by my boyhood in Placerille, has been.

With Hometown Lake, I move beyond memory to the realm of my deepest imaginings. I'm intrigued by the vision of a lakeside village, where calm waters soothe my tranquil days as I while away the time swimming, fishing, daydreaming. I believe that people in every part of our nation and all parts of our culture share this vision, this longing for a peaceful lakeside place.

I expect Hometown Lake will strike a chord of sympathy with people who, like me, didn't literally grow up in a lakeside village, but who respond to the allure of its simple cabins, its intriguing pathways, its cluster of inviting houses, its picturesque country church.

Dusk descends on Hometown Lake touching the scene with tranquility and radiant color. It could be any season, any year. Hometown myths and memories live in a secret place in the heart that is beyond the reach of time."

~~Thomas Kinkade
