Low hanging clouds are seen enveloping the mountains in the background. Smoke is coming from the chimney of the little cabin as perhaps the owner sits by the fire with a good book and a cup of coffee. This is a cozy scene where we can all see ourselves spending the day indoors. Wet Season was painted in 1983 and is signed on the lower right by Thomas Kinkade. The signature is exactly what Thomas was using at this phase of his career.
This was one of the first major galleries to sell Mr Kinkade's original work. It is titled "Wet Season". We have added an expensive hand made nameplate that is done in 23K Gold Leaf. This piece has nice lighting effects, as many Kinkade originals have. We posted a photo of the painting over our fireplace.This photo was taken in the evening with a spot light coming down from the ceiling. We also posted a photo of the edge of the painting. We sometimes get this request because people want to see the paint on the edges to verify that a work is an original and not a print. Let us know if you have any questions.

From the age of four, his calling as an artist was evident, and by 16 he was an accomplished painter in oil under the apprenticeship of the well-known artist Glen Wessels. After studies at the University of California at Berkeley, and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Kinkade began work for the motion picture industry at age 22.
He personally created over 600 background paintings for the animated feature film, Fire and Ice. This intensive period of work for the movie business may well have been the genesis of Kinkade's mastery of pictorial lighting effects. In 1983, Thomas Kinkade left the film industry to pursue his vision as painter of light-filled landscapes. Since then his career has been documented in feature articles and/or editorial exposure in such well-known magazines Architectural Digest, American Artist, Collector's Mart Magazine, Collector Editions, Lively Arts and Leisure, Worldwide Challenge, US Art, Southwest Art, and Weekend. He is a regular guest on radio talk shows and and has made a guest appearance on ABC's popular network show, "Home", starring Gary Collins.
Kinkade's impressive list of honors includes: two Certificates of Merit from the New York Society of Illustrators, two Founder's Awards from the National Parks Academy for the Arts (the first artist ever to receive this award twice), a two-man show at the C. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana, over 10 one-man shows, and countless personal appearances. Furthermore, Kinkade was chosen as the official artist for the 1989 National Park's Collector's Print and the 1990 Commemorative Press Collector's Print honoring Rotary International.Also in 1991 he won "Plate of the Show" in Southbend, Best New Artist of The Year for NALED in 1992, Collector "Award of Excellence" in 1993 and Lithograph of the year for NALED was named second runner-up for Lithograph of the year for NALED and first runner-up for Artist of the Year.
