If you’re an art fan like I am, you may have come across the infamous painter Thomas Kinkade at one point or another. 1 in 20 homes across America owns an original painting by the artist whose work appealed to a wide variety of eclectic tastes and preferences . His brilliant use of chiaroscuro – the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, made him a favorite for many enthusiasts who are moved by the unique style and emotion he depicts throughout his work. Critics who often criticized his shallow perception within this field are often brutally abutted by popular perception of the market which continues to drive up Kinkade’s marketable value. One reason behind this is the note of inspiration behind his work that is commonly said to be attributed to a religious region- a source of his true passion. Others argue that many of his ideas stemmed from a deep connection to the outdoors and the importance of “home” and what that truly meant. You can’t miss the abundance of houses featured in the vast majority of his paintings and the gorgeous colors typically emanating from within the structures. Although Kinkade passed away at an early age in 2012, his artwork still goes on to affect thousands of people with his talent for using oils.
Art dealers aren’t the only one who strive to keep Kinkade’s memory alive since the flower world has decided to take a piece of his essence and add it to this season’s holiday floral line!
