Kinkade and The Valley of Peace

The Valley of Peace, Thomas Kinkade

The main character of my short story “Master of Light” finds peace in Thomas Kinkade’s artwork. She even visits a Thomas Kinkade gallery at a local mall. I’ve been to one of those, too. I am impressed with Kinkade’s presentation of peace, majesty, and perfection. We need those artists who can reach into the canvas and pull out our loveliest ideals. For some reason, it makes it worse when someone has pulled out canvas after canvas (after canvas) of the same loveliness and then goes on to sell millions of prints of the same. Shouldn’t true beauty be a little harder to reproduce? Those are my thoughts. The main character of my story doesn’t quite agree with me.

  1. Amy, I so much agree with you.
    We have a saying around our house. If I don’t know what it is , it’s not Art. Also , if it’s something I can do myself, it’s not Art.
    Darn, that would have made a good blog title.
    Oh well, I think I’ll use it in the future anyway,
    Please don’t stop! I love your work.

    Thanks so much

    Lucky old man
