A small village nestled in a bucolic cove serves as haven to all that are weathering the storm. It may be rough

seas that are battering a vessel filled with maritime wayfarers or it may be the turmoil of life that is working

to break the individual spirit , but in either case this homey harbor offers peace and the refuge needed to

rediscover direction. There is a message in this works that we should all take to heart. No matter how great

the tempest, we never have to face it alone if we let the light guide us. this idea has never been as thoroughly

and profoundly stated in my brother's work than in this canvas, entitled Seaside Haven.


The lighthouse in the background serves to guide those lost at sea while the lightpost in the foreground

brings the sojourner on foot in from the darkest night. And in between these two physical beacons stands

the most powerful and important light of all. God's light shines mightily in the small community Church

fronting the coast as it waves forward all those lost in life to find comfort inside. It is this more than

anything that Thom wanted his collectors to understand. God is real and eternal while trouble is

ephemeral and will pass as a morning mist does in theafternoon sun. "Stand fast against the storm,"

he would say "And let the light deliver you safely back into grace." From my brother, and all those

involved at the Thomas Kinkade Studios, we thank you for sharing the light.
