    Gee, that's sad. Rather young for natural causes, altho perhaps he'd been ill.

    When I think of his art, I think cottages...trees...water...snow...lights...home.

    I got familiar with his work when I cross stitched one of the paintings. I have always enjoyed his work, and he did it with such passion.

    God speed, Mr. Kinkade, and thanks for all the joy and peace you've brought millions of people. Now rest in the Joy and Peace of God's heaven...paint the skies for us, all right?

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Artist Thomas Kinkade Dies at Age 54




    I am so sorry to learn that he has passed away. His paintings are so

    beautiful. I own four different framed scenes of his English cottage prints

    with lighting and the beautiful flowers. I treasure them.


    He died much too young .

    Being an art/music lover...I always feel so sad when one of them goes. What would they have done in the future that was not to be...I guess that is selfish.

    Altho of course, that is true of everyone. What would their future have been?

    Blessings to his family and friends.

    Popular painter Thomas Kinkade dies in Calif.
    By John S. Marshall
    Associated Press

    San Francisco— Artist Thomas Kinkade once said that he had something in common with Walt Disney and Norman Rockwell: He wanted to make people happy.

    And he won success with brushwork paintings that focused on idyllic landscapes, cottages and churches — highly popular works that became big sellers for dealers across the United States.

    The self-described "Painter of Light," who died Friday at age 54, produced sentimental scenes of country gardens and pastoral landscapes in dewy morning light that were beloved by many but criticized by the art establishment...

    Absolutely love his works. Wish I had bought the Indian village painting many moons ago. He always paid tribute to his wife somewhere in every painting. Walk with God...you will be missed.

    Fell in love with Mr Kincaid and his work after seeing the movie "The Christmas Cottage!" He truly was a Painter of Light! Rest in Peace Mr. Kincade!

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of Mr. Kinkade's death. I always enjoyed his work. I used to love to watch him every time he was on QVC. He will be missed!

    I know of no other artist like him - he was truly one of a kind.

    RIP Mr. Kinkade.
