The hush of the evening begins to settle over a small country home with a quiet stillness that is broken only by the gentle babble of the brook, the rustle of the wind in the trees, and the soothing creak-and-turn of the water wheel. It is in moments like these where the peace and harmony of simpler times can be both enjoyed and realized.
Thomas Kinkade believed that simplicity is better than complexity, and that true joy is found in the foundations of life. As the waterwheel turns in these quiet moments, we are reminded of life’s larger circles and our place in their completion. Sunrise to sunset, winter to spring, these are the rhythms of life and the grand design of its Creator. It’s a place where we find joy, the satisfaction of work and rest, the love of family and home.
Simpler Times II is the latest masterwork from the Thomas Kinkade Studios, and we hope that it reminds each of us that it is possible to enter into a life filled with peace, joy and simpler times.
