When people asked Thomas Kinkade to show them the light.  He did.  Kinkade was a master at putting to canvas what appeared to be luminescent.  His painting glowed with the hue of star or a sunset or the window light of a cabin.  His thousands and thousands of fans collectively believed that he could transport them through his artwork to a place of tranquility.  

His popularity with the masses was conversely expressed by art critics.  Fine art collectors dismissed his importance and style as fleeting and juvenile – while home owners bought his wares.  His art centered around Christian themes and traditional rustic settings.  With churches, rivers or cottages as his backdrop, he rarely included individuals in his paintings.  

What really set off his critics was how he mass produced and then franchised his art through galleries.  Because of the demand for his painting started to grow so did becoming a distributor of his artwork.  At one point, Kinkade had more than 4000 affiliated galleries around the United States that shilled his work.  As the self-named 'painter of light' explained, his mass production style was no more unusual that a writer mass producing a book or a musician pressing more albums.  

At one point in the early 2000s, Kinkade’s Media Arts Group, took in an estimated $32 million per quarter from 4,500 of his gallery owners from across the country.  People have paid in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for his art and his reprints sold for more than $10,000 a pop.  

Ultimately, the distribution strategy came back to bite him in the posterior.  Groups of first tier distributors began to squawk that they had been duped through religious means to carry more inventory then they could unload.  Before Kinkade passed away in California recently at the young age of 54, Kincade faced a barrage of legal and potentially criminal accusations that dulled the intensity of his brightness and earnings.


Bottom Line: By controlling his lifestyle and spending less than he makes, Thomas earns $7,722,250 per year after lifestyle, taxes and other expenses.
