    You sound like Mark Morford I get the feeling that Kinkade's art could be a cultural product of Wealth Ministries from the type of Joel Osteen. Wealth is to be worn like a cloak as an indicator of God's approval. The poor and the unsuccessful on the other hand are being punished. Am I way off here?

    I can't do what he did either from the artistic aspect or the financial aspect. Can any of you critics best him? And, by the way, what are the critics' credentials here?

    This absolutely looks like jealousy to me. As I stated before I didn't care for his work but he made many people happy and he became filthy rich for it.

    Jealousy...

    Not jealously! Drug dealers make people happy and they come filthy rich! So you admire drug dealers too?

    Sirius... are you serious? What does drug dealing have to do with visual art? You're WAY off base.

    You're starting to troll.

    A number of us have explained our position and that has to do with his banal paintings, but mostly has to do with his assembly line work and his business practices.

    Stating "jealous" in each of your posts, when that aspect has been explained to you is merely trolling for a reaction.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Not that it means much but I am a senior art student. I look at and make art on a daily basis. I paint nearly every day.
