Thomas Kinkade's Eternal Springtime was Thom's final painting that he had just completed just a couple weeks prior to his passing and it has been kept in his wife (Nanette Kinkade's) home since that time. Thom's wife, Nanette Kinkade found it resting on his easel at his private studio. Nanette Kinkade has kept the original unveiled the original "Eternal Springtime" painting to a selected few gallery owners in February 2013 and she informed us that Thomas Kinkade had a routine where he would devote some time daily to enjoy the outdoors and he had a favorite bench where he would read the bible or his books, surrounded by sunlight and the beauty of nature, to relax and absorb God's goodness. Despite having a very busy schedule, Thom still take time to reflect on life and mother nature. Thomas Kinkade's Eternal Springtime in Nanette's words, "depicts the perfect place to recharge and disconnect from daily life, even if just for a few minutes. One cannot help but smell the sweet fragrance of the lilies or feel the warmth from the sun shining onto the weathered bench when viewing this piece. This is a serene resting place where peacefulness reigns and the hope that the springtime significance is painted into every stroke." Nanette also stated that Thomas Kinkade's Eternal Springtime "reflects Thom's spirit, optomism, peace, joy and hope which is what symobolized Thom and is what Thom was. Eternal Springtime is a perfect example of Thom's way of continuing to let his light shine."
