Art Notes

There are places in nature where the bounty of God’s creation shines with such radiance that a humble heart is moved to express its gratitude in prayer. And in some of those natural sanctuaries, humankind has seen fit to provide the worshipper with a chapel where we can satisfy our need to pray.
Morning sunrise graces us with a radiant metaphor for faith, that no matter how dark the night, the day will dawn renewing the Lord’s tender mercies and rewarding the hopes of the faithful. The dappling sunlight shines upon the still lake, as the swans gracefully float, and as a sweet melody of a psalm seems to rise up, to be joined by the gentle murmur of the brook as it flows past the stone house of worship.
Inspired by a Thomas Kinkade original sketch, Willow Wood Chapel by Thomas Kinkade Studios evokes all the timeless elements he loved to reflect in his paintings.

Key Points

  • Willow Wood Chapel is the eighth Limited Edition release in Thomas Kinkade’s beloved Chapels of Nature series, which portrays inspirational places of prayer set in the Great Outdoors, highlighting the abundance of God’s creation.
  • The artists of the Thomas Kinkade Studios created Willow Wood Chapel, drawing inspiration from one of Thomas Kinkade’s original sketches.

  • The flowing brook is another life-giving symbol of God’s love.
  • The cobblestone architecture in Willow Wood Chapel reflects a signature Kinkade style used in some of Thomas Kinkade’s most famous paintings, including Dogwood Chapel and The Mountain Chapel, the first two works of art in the Chapels of Nature series.
