Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade: 'Painter of light'

thomaskinkade Kinkade was a phenomenon in his own life time. He was one of the most successful painters of modern times. One in twenty homes/businesses in the US has one of his prints hanging on their walls. His commercial acumen is the stuff of legend and has brought with it the obvious jealousy of others who have ridiculed his work and tried to bring his reputation into dispute. But none of it can take away from his talent to produce pictures which have a surreal beauty and sense of well being.

His works have been produced not only as prints but in many other mediums such as tapestries, books, ornaments, clocks and of course jigsaw puzzles. It is his jigsaws that here at cj-books-etc we are most interested. His paintings make for a wonderful but challenging subject matter. They are guaranteed to give hours of pleasure to any serious puzzler. On first attempting a Kinkade puzzle, it can seem a little daunting but it is well worth the effort. The sense of achievement upon finishing a Kinkade puzzle is most satisfying.

Kinkade himself is a larger than life character who unfortunately died young at the age of 54 in 2012. The controversy which surrounded him in life also surrounded his death. The official cause of death is heart attack but his drinking habit is said to have played a large part in his demise. Like many artists before him, his passion for his work spilled over into his private life and he lived his life with the passion with which he painted.

thomkinhome The subjects of his works have been described by some as 'kitsch'. This is really just sour grapes about his phenomenal success. Had he been a starving artist holed up in a garret somewhere, these same critics would no doubt have extolled the virtues of his work and compared him to the Greats! One thing which cannot be denied however is the amazing talent he had for capturing a scene and giving it an almost magical quality. In his paintings there is a luminescence that evokes peace and harmony. He didn't paint distressing scenes or erotica or anything unpleasant but produced works which give joy and pleasure to anyone who sees them. By doing a Kinkade puzzle you can feel the work in detail as you piece together the scene, understanding the painting as only a puzzler can, inch by inch.

We at cj-books-etc are very pleased to be able to bring you an extensive selection of Kinkade puzzles to enjoy and treasure. Our selection is constantly growing, so if there is a particular scene you want we may have it in stock but haven't yet listed it for sale. Let us know via our contact page. We'd also love to hear about your experiences of doing a Kinkade puzzle, so let us know. If we quote from your review on our website you'll get a 10% voucher towards your next purchase direct from cj-books-etc.
