Thomas Kinkade – Painter Of Light
Thomas Kinkade, known as the “Painter of Light” had extraordinary talent in creating his simple, yet serene and beautiful paintings. Never before, that I know of, has a painter been able to capture the realism of light to a painting like this man has.
In his galleries, there are different selections of his paintings with lights above them that never ceases to amaze me of how a painting can actually appear to have a glowing light in a window.
Thomas Kinkade painted what he felt from his heart and wanted everyone to be able to enjoy his work at reasonable costs. Many art pieces are priced so high than average people can never afford to have the luxury of a painting in their home until this man made a change in that.
Even people who earn an average income can afford his work and enjoy the peaceful visions he saw as he painted.

A Gift To The People Or Sell Out?
A lot of other artists and many people believed that Thomas Kinkade cheapened his work and was a sell-out for not limiting his work and by not charging thousands and thousands of dollars to own a piece of his art.
Mr. Kinkade did not care what others thought of him and how he presented his work to the public. His passion was the simple things in life and painting from inspiration and with the intention of giving inspiration to as many people as he could.
