June 2005 Release
"Any life worth living is a life enriched by frequent new beginnings.
Recently, I entered into a new beginning of
my own: the third decade of my life's work as a published artist. As I think
back on all the memories and inspirations
the last twenty years have held, I am filled with eager anticipation of what
the coming decade may bring.
Perhaps in your own life you've had cause to reflect on a season of new
beginnings recently. For many, the past
few years have brought change. Perhaps you have encountered in recent days a
new love to savor, or a new
career opportunity to embrace, or even a new life challenge to be faced.
This is the inspiration behind my
newest painting, Gate of New Beginnings. In this work, I have tried to
create an ode to the ever buoyant
human spirit and to the constantly curving pathway of life.
This work is special in another way: it is the first ever print created
especially for our most loyal collectors —
those who graciously take part in our exciting events each year. This
‘events only piece' is created as a form of
thank you to the many who have celebrated our events in the past, and to the
many new faces that we are
sure to see at upcoming events. Enjoy this print as a commemoration of not
just your passion for art, but also
of your passion for life!
As part of that celebration, I infused Gate of New Beginnings with an
explosion of color — joyous dogwood
blooms mingle with the fragrant floral blossoms that line the woodland path.
Since spring truly is the season
of new beginnings, my newest painting is also a joyous ode to spring."

Only very limited quantities of Gate of New Beginnings (12x16 and
18x24) will be available at participating galleries. This is because it is
an event-only piece and may only be purchased through an official Thomas
Kinkade event, such Master Highlighter Events, Patrick Kinkade Heritage
Tours and Thomas Kinkade personal appearances. Couple this with the fact
that Gate of New Beginnings will only be available for one year and retired
on June 30, 2006 and what you have a an extremely rare piece of art.
