Thomas Kinkade Lighthouses

Updated on May 5, 2014

"Painter of Light"

Thomas Kinkade is often called the Painter of Light. I love his beautiful paintings of gardens and cottages, but my love of lighthouses really draws me to his lighthouse paintings. I have a copy of Kinkade's Light of Peace hanging in my entryway and I enjoy looking at this peaceful scene.

Kinkades paintings always give me a good feeling. When I worked in the corporate world, I had several Kinkade reproductions hanging in my office. I think they gave me a peaceful setting in the midst of a hectic day. When I retired I brought them home and have them hanging in our bedroom.

In this lens I am featuring several of my favorite Kinkade lighthouse paintings, along with some of the products that show his paintings. I hope you enjoy the products and paintings I have selected.

Thomas Kinkade

special paintings

Thomas Kinkade was an American painter who lived from 1958 to April 6, 2012. Over the years he became a very popular artist. His scenes of idyllic cottages and beautiful lighthouse landscapes were collected by many. The widespread reproductions of his art made him one of the most collected artists of his time.

His art has also been reproduced on many different gift items. This too led to his popularity. Christmas cards with his scenes are still popular today. In this lens I will share some of my favorite paintings on a variety of different gift items.

Puzzles for the Lighthouse Enthusiast

Choose a lighthouse puzzle for the lighthouse enthusiast on your gift list. The first puzzle features Kinkades' painting Clearing Storms . Lighthouses before and after storms are often the subject of the paintings.

This painting is a beautiful example of Kinkade's lighthouse series. It shows the light of the lighthouse guiding through the darkness. The symbolism of the lighthouse is a constant reminder of God's light shining through the darkness of our lives.

The second puzzle is a serene scene of a Victorian lighthouse. It is very typical of Thomas Kinkade's idyllic paintings.

      I didn't know about Thomas Kinkade and obviously nothing about his paintings so I discover them right now! I must say that those paintings a some kind of fairy tales to me and as Growwear wrote, I would jump into one of them (or all of them) too!
