Kinkade Houses To Come To Life

Thomas Kinkade – the self-styles “painter of light” – is designing a series of homes in Idaho to look like housees in his paintings. “The California artist, beloved by middlebrow America but reviled by the art establishment, has signed a deal with developers in this resort city to help design five lake-view houses that are copies of homes in paintings such as ‘Beyond Autumn Gate.’ The houses will cost $4 million to $6 million.”
