Kinkade rather deliberately set himself up as celebrity painter. He actually trademarked his sobriquet "Master of light", so no other artist could
use a similar line. He churned out pictures like an assembly line.
Hardly anyone else thought this, but I thought his paintings were actually macabre. Scenes of houses or of suburban blocks without a single human (or
any other living thing) in sight - and the entire house lit up brightly, even those windows that obviously weren't near any lamps. Light,
without shadows of anyone inside, streaming from every window including attics, cupolas, those little windows by staircases where there shouldn't
have been a lamp, etc. It made the houses look haunted.
