      Like Tofu, I have a scene of the afterlife that beats the pants off of Mr. Kinkade.
      At a huge flea market fifteen years ago, I found a painting of Elvis, Jesus and John Wayne having a picnic in heaven, while being serenaded by Conway Twitty.

      On black velvet!
      It is seriously my most prized possession.

    Similar Artists To Thomas Kinkade? I’m doing a project on kitsch art and I actually think it’s hard to get some names on these dentist waiting room artists – apart from Mr Kinkade of course. Do you happen to know anyone who produces sweet, sentimental (and very bad) art?

    What Was This Thomas Kinkade Painting With Eagles? I remember seeing it in a magazine YEARS ago, it was a mother and baby eagle flying over a waterfall. I’ve searched for it on the internet, but i can’t find it. what was the name of that painting?

    • Curator says:

      I don’t know if I recall the Thomas Kinkade painting that you describe. He did have one similar in type. He did one of Peter Pan and Tinker Bell flying to Neverland. (Sad to hear recently that Thomas Kinkade died….such a great artist.)

    ‘Simpler Times’ With ‘The Painter Of Light’? ‘Simpler Times’ With ‘The Painter of Light’
    by Dan Wooding : Apr 11, 2012 : ASSIST News
    http://www.assistnews.net/Stories/2012/s12040043.htm
    Excerpts from a past interview by Dan Wooding with artist Thomas Kinkade who went home to the Lord last Friday.

    (Campbell, CA)—When I first heard the news that popular California artist Thomas Kinkade, 54, had died of natural causes on Friday (April 6, 2012) at his home in Los Gatos. California, it brought back memories of the time I first met Kinkade and later interviewed him.

    Some 13 years ago, I had been invited to speak at the Home Church, in Campbell, California, which had started through the ministry of Pastor Mike and Trisha Kiley and calls itself a “multi-ethnic, multi-generational church, with strong emphasis on reaching out to our local community.”

    At the end of the service, I was introduced to Kinkade who, at the time, was the church’s most well-known member, and I asked if he would grant me a phone interview, which he did a few days later.

    In this rare interview, Kinkade, who [was] America’s most collected living artist, a painter-communicator and whose tranquil, light-infused paintings brought hope and joy to millions, talked about the basic values of family and home, faith in God, and the luminous beauty of nature. He also challenged others to use their talents for God.

    Kinkade said that he credits the Lord for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings.

    “My goal is to touch all people, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images I create and I see my art as a ministry tool to share Jesus Christ with the masses,” he said.

    Kinkade went on to say, “I became a Christian in 1980, when I was about 22 years old, and I would say that when I was saved, my art got saved. It was then that a very interesting transition began in my life. I started to see the characteristic of light begin to develop within my work. The darkness was leaving and the light was beginning to break forth. For example, my paintings, prior to that time, were very much self-defining and idiosyncratic. They were very much my own expression.

    “I had little interest in how my art affected other people. In fact, my college professors would constantly make the point that one’s art is all about one’s self. It doesn’t matter if someone else understands or likes it. It doesn’t matter if they purchase it. All that matters is you.’ It was art as self-expression, as opposed to any concern for, or consciousness of an audience, or any desire to impact other people.

    “When I became a Christian, I began to challenge that notion. To this day, I find it odious that that notion is fostered within the arts. It is very self-serving and a self-absorbed kind of approach to creativity that really is ineffective. In fact, artists have fought the wrong battle over the past 75 to 100 years. The battle has been one for the freedom of expression, the battle to obtain freedom of expression. Well, artists have won that battle but, in the meantime, they’ve lost the war for cultural relevancy and a positive impact on society.”

    “Painter Of Light” Artist Thomas Kinkade Died 5 Days Ago, And Good Old Bradford Exchange Cluttered Up My…? …mailbox today with an offer to purchase his “Seasons of the Heart” framed canvas print collection. 5 days, people!

    Ka-ching, ka-ching! (Very strong demand is expected….respond NOW to make sure you DO NOT MISS OUT!!!)

    BQ: What is your opinion of T.K. and his “art”?

    RBQ: Do you own anything with Kinkade’s images? (To include mugs, magnets, calendars, prints, etc.)

    Best Answer: Goes to the one who can guess what each one of these “PRICELESS” prints goes for! In the event of a tie…I will choose the most clever answer among those with the correct figure!

    (Brain Babe enjoys being amused!)

      Van Gogh never made anything while he was alive, Elvis has made more since he died, need I say more?
