As a rule, Thom did not paint portraits, but he was intensely interested in the human spirit. He portrayed people by evoking the life they live in the homes they built for themselves. Whether it is an inviting inn or a stately mansion, a home is a window into the world of its owner. Architecture fascinated Thomas Kinkade because it was truly the art of living. When he discovered a picturesque home or elegant estate, he humbly offered its portrait to his friends in the light.
