    The world should weep at the stilling of such a talent.

    The guy definitely had talent, though not quite the style I would put in my house. His stuff was way way way over commercialized. That made his stuff a turnoff too, but I'm not going to blame him. Hell, if I could make $100M a year in sales of my work, I would too! :laugh2:

    I don't understand what there is to hate about them. I guess it's the same as comparing The Beatles to Justin Beiber.

    Perhaps it's easier for more people to appreciate Kincade's work than Picasso's, therefore it must be "middlebrow."

    I'm pretty sure I have some of his artwork around my house, on a puzzle, a Christmas card, and a cookie tin.
