Caesarea (Impressions of Israel Collection)
Tom recently flew to Israel in Spring 2006 and painted 10 images. Upon Thomas Kinkade's arrival in Israel, due to the current tight security, his paint thinner was removed. He had to search around to get a replacement so he could start painting. Upon arrival, Thom got to work and started his first piece.

On the sea-coast of Israel about halfway between Tel Aviv and Haifa, lies the ancient trading port of Caesarea.

Caesarea was originally called Straton's Tower after its founder Straton, who is believed to have been a ruler of Sidon in the 4th century BCE. In 96 BCE the city was captured by Alexander Yannai and remained in the Hasmonean kingdom until it became an autonomous city by Pompey. After being in the possession of Cleopatra, ruler of Egypt, the city was returned by Augustus to Herod the Great.

Herod the Great, ruler of the Land of Israel from 37 to 4 BCE, expanded the port and renamed the city "Caesarea" to honor Roman Caesar Augustus. In 13 BCE Caesarea was made the civil and military capital of Judaea, and the official residence of the Roman governors (Procurators). The trading port exported products from the region to all over the Mediterranean.

Caesarea is an important site in Christian history. It was the place where Pontius Pilate governed during the time of Jesus. This was where Simon Peter converted the Roman, Cornelius, the first non-Jew to believe in Jesus. Paul was also imprisoned for two years in Caesarea. During the 3rd century, Caesarea was a center of Christian learning. In the 4th century, the site converted to Christianity and became a major center of the Christian Roman Empire.

Today, Caesarea is one of Israel's major tourist attractions and an increasingly popular place for Israel's elite to make their homes.

In conjection with the Minister of Tourism, an Exhibition titled "From Abraham to Jesus" will tour many cities in the United States. The exhibition features 240 artifacts from the Holy Land including the Dead sea Scrolls. Thomas Kinkade's 10 paintings of the Holy Land are included in the Exhibition and "A Prayer for Peace" is the over banner for the exhibit.

Google "From Abraham to Jesus" to find out more.

++++ About the Examination Proof Edition ~~

Examination Proof (E/P) Canvas
An Examination Proof (E/P) edition was created and so named to give collectors a chance to examine new images and place orders pre-publication. It is the "show off" edition of the artwork. Examination Proofs are issued in Canvas only with hand embellished oil highlighting and in only one size.

+++++ And this is what Thomas Kinkade said about this work +++++
"I worked on Caesarea at sunset, as the sun touched the wispy clouds with gold and painted the azure Mediterranean a rich cobalt blue. I worked at a frantic pace as I struggled to keep up with the setting sun. I think you'll note the broken colors and bold brush strokes that give plein air studies like this their energy and dramatic power. Caesarea may not be a vigorous port any longer, but I certainly attempted to make my Caesarea a vigorous painting."

~~Thomas Kinkade
