+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"What's around the next bend? What lies at the end of the trail? When I walk an unfamiliar path, curiosity drives me on. The Forest Chapel portrays a daydream I've had many times: often while hiking some wooded trail I've come upon a spectacular flowering meadow and thought, "What a wonderful place to worship God." The idea of a chapel in an unspoiled natural setting has intrigued me for years.
In The Forest Chapel I have tried to capture a harmony between what's within and what's without. Light glows from the chapel windows, suggesting the warm spirit of fellowship within. Shafts of morning light filter, golden, through the trees, dappling the forest floor with a divine light. The sweet melody of psalm singing rises up, to be joined by the gentle murmur of the brook that flows past the house of worship.
A Holy Spirit dwells in the chapel and in the glade that houses it. Both proclaim the presence of God."

~~Thomas Kinkade
