Am I going to get thrown out of here if I tell you that I can't stand Thomas Kincade's work?

P.S. "Santa's sack is full of orbs!"

The master, Smut Clyde say: When life gives you Kink, make Kinkade.
Teh Sachmanta looks like a merry Hessian Mercenary of the type what burnt Washington in 18whatever-it-was. This haz a meaning I'm sure.

Laura said...

Regarding Kincade... what I said on another blog.. about a year ago, was that I grew up on a farm and farms usually don't have waterfalls on them. (a blogger had posted a print of Kincade's).. this comment, by me, started off a whole shit storm, the likes of which, I never want to be involved in again. Which is why, I asked if I would be tossed if I disrespected his work...

:)
Mommy bloggers can be real bitches sometimes...

That river picture is absolutely beautiful.
I buy beautiful pictures, just ask Blue Girl's child.....
Just sayin'

Gorgeous birdies as always.

And...wait...did Thomas Kincaid paint that Santa? Cuz I actually don't hate it. It doesn't seem nearly as insipid as all his damn motel art landscapes.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I don't know if he painted it, or had 'his people' do it.

vacuumslayer said...

Omg, he actually has people? I at least thought he was making his smarmy art on his own.

Jennifer said...

Wow that's a big orb in the woods.

Grandma! What big orbs you have!!!

The better to ____ you with, my dear!

I might be wrong about that.

Kinkade's works are sold by mail order and in dedicated retail outlets as high-quality prints, often using texturizing techniques on real canvas to make the surface of the finished prints mimic the raised surface of the original painting. Some of the prints also feature light effects that are painted onto the print surface by hand by "skilled craftsmen," touches that add to the illusion of light and the resemblance to an original work of art, and which are then sold at higher prices.

Read the whole thing!

In 2006 John Dandois, Media Arts Group executive, recounted a story that on one occasion ("about six years ago") Kinkade became drunk at a Siegfried & Roy magic show in Las Vegas and began shouting "Codpiece! Codpiece!" at the performers. Eventually he was calmed by his mother
