Thomas Kinkade “Painter Of Light” Passes Away at 54
One of the most popular artists of the 20th century has died. Family members say Thomas Kinkade passed away at his home Friday morning. He was 54.
His wife, Nanette, issued a statement saying, “Thom provided a wonderful life for his family. We are shocked and saddened by his death.” His death appears to have been natural causes.
He leaves behind four daughters and his wife, Nanette.
Kinkade’s paintings are estimated to be hanging in 1 out of every 20 homes in America.
In my home, I have worked many a Thomas Kinkade puzzle. They took me weeks to complete. The intricate details of light, the subtle nuances of hues were agonizing to piece together. Kinkade was a master painter in my opinion. His works were beautiful. He will be missed.
