In Memory of Thomas Kinkade

Of Kinkade’s passing, Lance Klass, Porterfield’s Fine Art Licensing says: "His work affected millions of lives, he is to be applauded and remembered for the way he brought light, beauty, safety and serenity, into so many lives. What a gift.

Renowned and heavily licensed Thomas Kinkade, 'Painter of Light' passes unexpectedly on April 6, 2012. One of the most licensed and highly-collected artists of all time, with annual sales around the US$425 million mark.

"Hang one of Mary Serantoni's photographs in your home and you will be whisked away to another part of the world.  Mary captures the amazing beauty, colors, and details of each destination.  Her work can be found at Serantoni Designs  I especially love this one because of the vibrant spring colors."  -
