My Favorite Paintings

Today I thought I would share my favorite paintings with you.  When it comes to artwork, I have always been in the frame of mind of  "buy what you love" and "would you want to be there?" (Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge so you can really see the detail.)

For my 40th birthday Mark bought me two Thomas Kincaid prints.

 "Victorian Garden II"
The canvas measures 20" x 24". 
It's nice and big and easy to enjoy.

 "Stillwater Bridge"
Sweetheart Gardens I

It is a smaller canvas measuring about 12" x 16".
I have it just propped against the wall on a shelf
in our Master Bedroom.

Then about five years ago, we had an opportunity to buy this one 
directly through someone who works for Thomas Kincaid. 
I love it!!
"A Peaceful Retreat"
"Beginning of a Perfect Evening II"
I want to live here too!
We have this one hanging above our bed. 

Someday, when we get our cabin in Colorado, this one will go there. (sigh.)

Very pretty pictures. I love Thomas Kinkade's work. It has that magical and serene feeling to each picture. :)

Love them all. Wouldn't it be fun to live in that farmhouse and decorate that porch...!
