I buy a nice calendar for my mum, brother and sister, and myself every year as part of the Christmas present. I trawled through hundreds of Amazon's offerings in a variety of genres and was suddenly taken by the sheer beauty of these Thomas Kinkade calendars. I opted for the 'Painter of Light' because several of the images are of locations other than purely a cottage setting e.g. the picture displayed. Having received them now, I am very happy - they are indeed the most wonderfully enchanting paintings imaginable and can't wait to give them to my family come the big day. Strongly recommended.
