      I do not have any of the collectibles by Thomas Kinkade but I really do love his work.

      I've been a picture framer for something like 20 years now and so am quite familiar with much of his work, especially the cottage scenes. But you've got some images here that show he has more range than I though. Nice lens. :)

      I love Thomas Kinkade, and if I could paint, I'd love to be able to paint such beautiful and uplifting scenes. I give my former in-laws a Thomas Kinkade collectible every year for Christmas, this year it was a snowman, and so beautiful!
