READING: "Fill your home with beautiful aromas. Have you ever noticed how a single whiff of a familiar fragrance has the power to carry you instantly back to your childhood?" One of America's best-loved artists, Thomas Kinkade is known as the "Painter of Light." In his new book Family Traditions, Kinkade's beautiful paintings complement his own words and those of other great writers and thinkers, including Margaret Mead, Ben Franklin, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, to celebrate the bonds and traditions of family. Families keep us grounded with subtle reminders of our heritage and, at the same time, serve as a springboard to help us embark on new adventures. Our families provide love, support, and strength. Whatever our family tree looks like, Family Traditions recognizes the unbreakable ties and irreplaceable relationships we share with these special people in our lives, and reminds readers to "Make home a priority in life. Invest time and energy in creating a warm refuge for yourself and your family, a place where everyone can feel nurtured and cared for, safe and protected, free to be exactly who you are". -Thomas Kinkade Copyright 2005 Thomas Kinkade, The Thomas Kinkade Company, Inc., Morgan Hill, CA

READING: What I paint touches on foundational life values. Home, family, peacefulness. And one of the messages I try to constantly get across is slow it down and enjoy every moment." --Thomas Kinkade Thomas Kinkade sold more canvases than any other painter in history-more than Picasso, Rembrandt, Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Renoir, and Van Gogh combined. Thomas Kinkade, the celebrated Painter of Light, is the most widely collected artist in the world. His tranquil, light-infused paintings affirm the basic values of family, home, faith in God, and the beauty of nature.

Inside the book's pages, Thomas Kinkade's luminous images of lighthouses and seascapes mingle with his magnificent landscapes, quaint villages, and inviting front porches to illustrate a story of personal and professional growth. Each chapter begins with an introduction chronicling a milestone in Thomas Kinkade's life and artistic development, followed by beautiful, full-color reproductions of some of his favorite paintings. Exclusive photographs, family mementos, and never-before-seen unpublished artworks document Thom's life like a personal scrapbook, from childhood through his formative years as a student, to his present status as America's most beloved artist. No other book has given his legions of fans such an up close and personal look at his life. Thomas Kinkade received numerous accolades for his works on and off the canvas, including multiple National Association of Limited Edition Dealers (NALED) awards for Artist of the Year, Graphic Artist of the Year, and nine awards for Lithograph of the Year.

READING: As a painter and a person, I believe in the overwhelming power of light. Whether it's the strong lighthouse beam cutting through thick fog or the warm glow of firelight emanating from a cottage window, light fills us with hope, warmth, and serenity. Light truly has the power to illuminate our lives and guide us home." -Thomas Kinkade The lighthouse remains one of civilization's strongest symbols. Through its image of light and strength are projected some of our most cherished values: hope, direction, steadfastness, duty, reliability, comfort, and home. Artist and author Thomas Kinkade knows this powerful symbolism well, and he captures it through this collection of paintings and inspiring thoughts, Beacons of Light. "...[Even] in times of darkness and doubt, there are always bastions of hope and beacons of light to guide us," Mr. Kinkade writes. "For some, the light is powerful friendship, for others, a strong family, and for many, the guiding light comes from an unshakeable faith in God." These are the thoughts and sentiments that flow forth from Beacons of Light. Thomas Kinkade's majestic and light-filled paintings combine with inspiring quotations from many of history's greatest thinkers for memorable impact in this heartwarming collection. Louisa May Alcott, T. S. Eliot, James Allen, Emily Brontë, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edith Wharton, and Thomas Kinkade himself are but a few of the many sources lending voice to Beacons of Light. Their effect-when matched with the artist's windswept seas, rugged architecture, and life-sustaining beams of light-is uplifting and inspirational.
