Here's a question from one who I consider to be a "Hillbilly Art" connoisseur (me); what category of art would The painter of Light, Thomas Kincaid's work most comfortably fit into? I know it's not 'highbrow' art, but it is very comforting to gaze upon for extended periods of time! ;)

I resemble that quuestion!

My wife, as much a Pennsyltuckian as I, absolutely goes crazy mad with vitriol at a mere glance of anything Kincaid! I shall never mention her closet full of Elvis on black velvet.

It is easy to mock the likes of Kincaid, indeed my initial response to your question might have been simply 'kitsch'.

However, I am keen on that great German Romantic Landcape artist Caspar David Friedrich. There is a point, whilst tenuous when applied to the quality of the painterly skill exhibited by these two men, which could be argued, though, that in theme and evocation there is a link between Kincaid and Friedrich....

Still, give me Friedrich any old day of the week.

LOL. I share your pain. Mrs Eagle was such a fan of the "King" that after we became empty nesters, she redecorated one of the kids bedrooms as The Elvis Blue Suede Room and we find ourselves making the occasional pilgrimage to Graceland. And truth be told, Elvis's Tupelo, MS birthplace has been in her rear view mirror at least a half dozen times! :crazy: The woman is a real fan.

Graceland is on my "to visit" list!
