I just heard that Thomas Kinkade has passed away. He was known for his idyllic paintings. He has also become America’s most collected living artist. I think that his painting style was beautiful. For me, these scenes are too perfect. Life isn’t like that, but I can see how this would appeal to a lot of people. It is good that Kinkade could bring so much positive artwork to so many people. You will be missed, Thomas Kinkade.
