Thomas Kinkade #181/1240 DBL SIGNED Lamplight Village 18×24 G/P Limited Thomas Kinkade Canvas
Thomas Kinkade released Lamplight Village in 1995. It displays the techniques that gave Thomas Kinkade his nickname, The Painter of Light. As you change the lighting on the painting, the lights in the painting seem to come alive and brighten or dim as if the time of day were changing. Read what Kinkade said about this work when it was released:
“In this painting I wanted to create a scene with a great sense of discovery to it – as though you could stroll over that stone bridge and wander around the village finding things of interest everywhere you looked.As you ‘wander around’ this charming setting, keep your eyes open for the following small of hidden details:
An artist with an easel, twelve ducks, three cats, a mouse (a la David Winter), a workman on a roof, seven hidden ‘N’s', Kinkade’s daughter Chandler (with a ‘C’ on her clothing), Kinkade’s daughter Merritt (with an ‘M’ on her clothing), four dogs, nine lamp posts, two hearts with initials, two hearts with no initials, ten smoking chimneys, a person in a boat, four birds in trees, one perfect rose, a painter’s palette, a man with a pipe (perhaps Norman Rockwell), and an owl.”
Lamplight Village (Lamplight Lane IV)
