Life Lessons

I think that Thomas Kinkade was influenced by a lot of things. I think that he got his idealism and faith from his mother. Another thing that influenced him is his friend James Gurney, who got him a drawing job doing background art for the movie Fire and Ice. This job probably got him “found”. Glenn Wessels helped him by recommending him to an art school.

I learned that you can get a lot of money from being a famous artist. I also learned that you don’t have to be born rich to die rich. I was born very poor, but now I’m not. When he was five his parents divorced, leaving him with his mother. When I was four my parents divorced, leaving me with my mother.
