Artist Thomas Kinkade (1958-2012) was an American painter of popular realistic, pastoral, and idyllic subjects. He is notable for the mass marketing of his work as printed reproductions. Characterizing himself as “Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light,” Kinkade found he was inspired not by fame and fortune, but the simple act of painting straight from the heart, putting on canvas the natural wonders and images that moved him most. It was this dedication and singular-minded focus on the ultimate goal of Sharing the Light™ that made Thomas Kinkade, a simple boy with a brush from the small country town of Placerville, California the most-collected living artist of his time. Throughout his life Thomas Kinkade shared his joy and used his paints in support of hospitals, schools, and humanitarian relief. A devout and loving family man, Kinkade’s devotion for his family inspired him to add symbols of his love to his artwork. This includes hidden “N’s” and the numbers 5282 as a tribute to his wife, Nanette, and their anniversary. Additionally, Kinkade’s four daughters were also included in his artistic process- after the birth of each of his daughters with adoring images in each of their namesake. Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light™, emphasized simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his art – and the branded products created from that art. From textiles, to collectibles, to music and books, Thom gave credit to a higher power for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist, who was Christian, was to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he had created.
Thomas Kinkade, the celebrated Painter of Light, is the most widely collected artist in the world. His tranquil, light-infused paintings affirm the basic values of family, home, faith in God, and the luminous beauty of nature.

I sent this to my sister and she loves it. She always has a Thomas Kinkade calendar and she really likes this one, not only for the pictures but for the large squares for writing memos on like appointments and birthdays. - Martham
