A quick note about the death of Thomas Kinkade:
His art did a poor job of reflecting the Gospel that he professed. Sin and redemption are a part of that story, but instead of his art reflecting death and decay and our eventual victory over it, his art simply acted as though it doesn’t exist.
This is the reason so many could find true beauty in his art, which was present in some degree, while others found it superficial.
Nevertheless, RIP Mr. Kinkade.
