The Last Piece of the Apocalypse Puzzle

…has fallen into place and the end is blindingly near. (I’d be buying bottled water and toilet paper on the way home from work, yo.)

Thomas Kinkade ready to exit dark period

The future looks brighter for the Painter of Light.

Thomas Kinkade, known for selling mass manufactured paintings in shopping malls nationwide, watched his Morgan Hill-based production company slide into bankruptcy court last year.

Now, the firm is planning a turnaround that includes several consecutive years of profit.

Stand the fudge by.

All HELL’S fixin’ to break loose.

    Triple rainbow, Ricki. Means three pots o gold.

    If I see one more of his renderings of a cozily lit window on a snowy night, I’ll… well, I don’t know what I’ll do. But it won’t be pretty.

    I don’t begrudge the man his living, and obviously someone who is drawn to paint has a love of trying to capture a place and the feelings it evokes. I don’t even begrudge his the mass-production of said paintings…

    …sometimes, I just wonder, is he happy doing so little of the painting himself, anymore?

    His smarmy “ministry” crap made me barf, Diptera. And the triple pots couldn’t hold the hypocrisy.

  6. Dr Alice says:

    I can’t argue with his technical skill, it’s definitely there. And I like my pictures pretty, so it’s not that. But for whatever reason, I don’t know, they bug me no end.

    Bankrupt? Don’t trailer parks need art, too?

  10. tree hugging sister says:

    MBird, I don’t, like, owe you any money for using the crappy picture or anything do I? ‘Cause I ain’t paying.

    The Painter of Dreck has been artistically bankrupt for years. He gives kitsch a bad name.

    Mockingbird must be mad!:)

    His stuff gives me the creeps for some reason. I think he’s on acid.
