    Painter Thomas Kinkade has died

    Like This Thread!
    Painter Thomas Kinkade, perhaps the greatest "painting for the masses" artist since Norman Rockwell, has died this last weekend (at the rather young age of 54).

    http://news.yahoo.com/painter-light-...052542846.html

    I love his artwork, they really seem to capture "moments in time", and they're uplifting portraits. If you're unfamiliar with his work, here's his online gallery. He will be missed.

    Why must a painter I've seen in my parents and grandparents' houses go away so fast....


    I didn't know he was still alive.

    Sad to hear of someone dying so young.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    R.I.P Thomas Kincade.

    One of his paintings has been hanging on the wall at my house since forever. He will be missed.

    Yeahhhhh, I have a bad knack for lying.

    A bit of a correction. It's Kinkade. Two ks.

    Fixed.

    The TODAY show did a segment on Kinkade this morning.

    To hear that segment, apparently Kinkade led a troubled life in the last few years. A shame, I never knew much of the man himself up until now.

    Yeah, his behavior sounds like that of a person with a serious alcohol problem. Hopefully that didn't contribute to his early death.

    A friend sent me a Christmas card with his artwork a couple of years back. I looked him up and even bookmarked his site and he had some good works.

    R.I.P. Thomas Kinkade.
    The artist formerly known as PRdude.
