The Orignal Gallery, The Garden Gallery Cottage of Carmel on Ocean Avenue is located down a little path next to Carmel Bakery. The Artist was so taken by this cute English Cottage and Garden that he created the Painting "Studio in the Garden" which became a sold out collector piece. This is a must do for the first timer and die hard Kinkade Fans.
Coming from a modest background, Kinkade emphasizes simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his paintings. As a devout Christian, he uses his gift as a vehicle to communicate and spread inherent life-affirming values. His goal as an artist is to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he creates.
