An answer to those of us questioning the recent picture of tRumpty Dumpty with all his ‘faithful’ followers.
My late partner had a large Thomas Kincade and it hung on our wall for a few years. Then we made a trip to a local tourist town, Paulsbo, and went into a Thomas Kincade showroom. We found out about his paintings and that picture was immediately removed from our wall and donated to Goodwill.
I worked in a gallery during the Kincaid boom. It was ridiculous how many of each was cranked out. You can't tout something as limited edition and a valuable investment when everyone else has it and the value tanks as a result.
I always wondered how the workers that added the finishing touches to the copies were treated.
I don't know I rather like some of his paintings. I don't give a hoot about him being religious but find some of his painting colorful and happy. It's the same as if I was to be sick and needed a specific medicine but the person who "invented" that medicine was a religious nutter, now I certainly would not take that medicine on account of his/hers convictions.
The art piece this is about....oooffff.
It's gross, really. Truly the individual has talent, is hard to paint like that, despite some imperfections. But the content is so stomach churning. Like, he could have chosen to paint ANYTHING, and THIS is what he picked... vomit.
