Hidden N’s in Thomas Kinkade Paintings

Thomas Kinkade is very well know for his cabin and seashore paintings. He puts out calendars and many other artistic items such as key holders or postcards. However, what most people do not know is that he puts hidden “N”‘s into his paintings. If you have ever looked at a Where is Waldo? book or Eye Puzzles then you know how hard it can be to find hidden images within a book or painting. Thomas Kinkade’s art is very similar except his hidden letters can be even harder to find.

The reason that Kinkade hides N’s in his paintings is because his wife’s name is Nancy. When you look at a Thomas Kinkade painting there is a number at the bottom right of the painting that tells you how many of Nancy’s initials are located within the painting. Generally there are going to be a lot more N’s then you might expect.

If you are looking to try and find these hidden N’s you will need to be looking at the large version of the painting first of all. Try looking in the sky, on rocks, on the cabins or in trees. You might also find the N’s on canoe’s, tree stumps, or other random objects that might be within the painting. He also likes to put his famous N’s on lighthouses so make sure to look there as well. A lot of times you can find them in the background in places that people normally would not look so that random N’s are not distracting from the purpose of the painting.

If you own Thomas Kinkade paintings or if you are thinking about purchasing one, consider the challenge that comes along with his paintings. Find his hidden letters are you might just find that you are experiencing a whole new side of the Thomas Kinkade phenomenon.
