This painting was created a few years before Thomas Kinkade’s passing by artist Ron Lemen. And yes, as one would presume, it’s an intentional knock on Kinkade’s work.
Lemen’s statement about the painting:
“My idea was changing the landscape of art, wiping away the old habits and bringing in something new. Actually, I took an old and wiped it away, the landscape filled with happy little cottages and such…and such ick…our world is oversaturated with this stuff, can we change that please?”
