That’s what I mean when I talk about Shar­ing The Light.”

Thomas Kinkade is America’s most col­lect­ed artist. Com­ing from a mod­est back­ground, Kinkade empha­sized sim­ple plea­sures and inspi­ra­tional mes­sages through his paint­ings. As a devout Chris­t­ian, Kinkade used his gift as a vehi­cle to com­mu­ni­cate and spread inher­ent life-affirm­ing values.

A key fea­ture of Thomas Kinkade’s paint­ings are their glow­ing high­lights and sat­u­rat­ed pas­tel colors.

Ren­dered in a nat­u­ral­is­tic Amer­i­can Scene Paint­ing val­ues, his works often por­tray bucol­ic, idyl­lic set­tings such as gar­dens, streams, stone cot­tages, and Main Streets. His home­town of Plac­erville, CA (where his works are omnipresent) is the set­ting of many of his street and snow scenes.

He has also depict­ed var­i­ous Chris­t­ian themes includ­ing the Chris­t­ian cross and churches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=“CV” tab_id=“1556904212591–5cf4ad24-124fcfc7-1e2fbf04-4ffa89a3-5384ffbd-7f71”][vc_column_text]Coming Soon[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_tabs][/vc_column][vc_column width=“1/6”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_placement=“middle” width=“full” css=”.vc_custom_1556905803913{padding-right: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;}”][vc_column][us_grid post_type=“attachment” images=“800,817,816,815,814,813,812,811,810,809,808,807,806,805,804,803,802,801” items_quantity=“15” pagination=“ajax” items_layout=“gallery_default” type=“masonry” columns=“3” overriding_link=“popup_post_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
