Overview

"Give yourself a perk. Condition yourself for joy by doing little things that you love on a regular basis." Thomas Kinkade is America's most collected living artist. Each of the tranquil, light-infused paintings he creates is a quiet messenger, affirming the basic values of family, home, faith, and the luminous beauty of nature. Thomas Kinkade's paintings and his own words, as well as the words of Shakespeare, Keats, Wordsworth, and others, create a breathtaking gift book that is a jubilant celebration of beauty and joy. Kinkade points out that sources of joy can be found everywhere in the simple gifts life presents, such as the handshake of a friend, the caress of a warm breeze, or the sights and sounds of creation. He reminds readers that "Once you begin looking, you may be surprised to discover just how much joy your world has to offer."
