Thomas Kincade

As quiet as it's kept, TK is a solid impressionist painter in the classical sense.
The artist tried to show and sell his classical work, to the public early in his career. Needless to say,people didn't respond to that art.
The rest as they say is history.
You can't make people like what they don't like.
Kincade is banking big still these days.

"Banking big" I remember while in school, the professors laughed at Thomas Kincade. You know the reasons. His work was not cutting edge. It was too cute and saccharine. Yet it was selling like hotcakes.
I never chose to do sentimental art, pet portraits, or girls with big eyes for this very reason. I didn't want to be laughed at by the art community. I am reconsidering now. LOL
