I've never been shy about my feelings toward Thomas Kinkade & his work. I feel like he sold out to the all mighty dollar & lost some of the heart to his heart. However, he was a brother in Christ....and seemed to have at one point painted with a heart that is very like my own. I would have liked to have seen what would have happened stylistically to his work over the years. 54 is way to young to go!!! The world lost an amazing business man...who was an artist. I hope that this Easter "Painter of Light"...that you are looking into the face of our Savior & finding peace...joy...and beauty beyond your wildest imagination.
