    Apparently 1 in 20 homes has a Kinkade hanging on a wall. So if you are one of those, you should be aware of the news:
    Rather young. RIP

    While not a fan I had the previldge of viewing a collection of his original works. Such talent does not come along often. RIP

    I'd kind of like to see some of the original work. Most of what I've seen is the commercial stuff, where it looked like cottages in the woods that looked like they were on fire, but only on the inside.

    Funny - I really, really hated his work. Thought it was one step above Elvis on Velvet

    It has been called chocolate box art. But art is in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I've never been a big fan of Picasso's style or Dale Chihuly. The glass work is phenomenal, but I think the actual glass blowers should get more credit.
