I would attribute that to the mass merchandising of his work and professional jealousy.

I might not be versed in fine art but it seems to me that paintings, like music or film, if accepted by the masses is just as much are as the abstract stuff the art community hails but that no one else gets.

I would be curious to know if Kinkade's demons weren't part of the lack of respect many in the art community afforded him.

Regardless, his was a tremendous loss and one that should be noted in the Christmas community at large because he did much for Christmas, too.
I totally agree, Jeff! I don't know if you're a reader or not, but him and Kathy Spencer have wrote some very good Christmas books as well. Very enjoyable reads!
