Details: Thomas Kinkade began publishing his paintings so that he could share his passion for beauty and art. Thom painted more than a thousand masterworks. There is no greater testament to his belief that art should be accessible for everyone to enjoy than the millions of Thomas Kinkade images that grace the walls of homes around the world. Thomas Kinkade worked to create images that project a serene simplicity that can be appreciated and enjoyed by everyone. The artist's mission comes to life in the wonderful Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light 2013 Deluxe Wall Calendar. Each spread features a full-color image including Summer's Heritage, a painting that pays tribute to the hardworking people whose character was forged on storied ranches and farmhouses that dot the plains and foothills of our magnificent country.
