    World less brighter w/passing of “Painter of light” Thomas Kinkade. His art touched my soul. I think he will now assist God w/sunsets.

    My mom’s favorite painter, Thomas Kinkade, died. My 1st thought: She has original paintings of his. Their value just went up so much.

    Thomas Kinkade died. Apparently this is almost as much a tragedy for my mother as it is his own family. #emailfrommom

    @Dooderwear’s favorite artist! RT @zachtgray: I bet Thomas Kinkade will have the most dreamy, over-saturated, sunset funeral ever.

    Mildly disturbed to see how many people I know consider Kinkade a wonderful artist. Yeah, and Patterson is a great author too, right? #meh

    @BaseballTomB Norman Rockwell was accused of painting kitsch but Kinkade takes it to outer space.

    Purgatory: Thomas Kinkade hears an ethereal voice, “Walk into the light.” Freezes, unable to decide which of the 27,000 paintings to go to.
