+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"Still waters run deep; the waters of this crystal pool offer balm to the
soul. Here, in this tranquil glade, God's perfect peace reigns.
I have frequently tried to capture on canvas such refuges. Stillwater
Cottage, which introduces my new Peaceful Cottages series, is, in a sense,
the companion piece to a painting I did years ago entitled Beside Still
Waters. This cottage sits comfortably in its hushed setting, where no
breeze rustles the leaves of the trees and the only motion is provided by
the graceful gliding geese.
I wanted Stillwater Cottage to come alive for you as a place of refuge. The
light pouring from the windows suggests that a family dwells at peace
within. Carefully observed details - the weathered brass bell over the
door, the stone bench and ancient rock retaining wall - give this cottage
The rich colors of sunset bathe the glade and the distant trees in glorious
light. In this place, God is surely present; we feel the comfort and
protection we can only know when we are in His hands."
