"Painter of Light" Thomas Kinkade dies at 54 - CBS News
Darn, a great artist lost.
Oh wait, just another great manipulator of the market place, someone who knew how to sell, sell, sell.
And did some really strange things along the way.
Like giving his four daughters each the same middle name: Christian.
To be sure we knew just how Good a Christian he was? Hhmm.
And maybe using bankruptcy to get out of paying a court ordered judgement to aggrieved franchise holders?
On June 2, 2010, Pacific Metro, the artist's production company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, one day after defaulting on a $1 million court imposed payment to the aforementioned Karen Hazlewood and Jeffrey Spinello. A $500,000 payment had previously been disbursed.
Naw, that wouldn't be Christian, would it?
