Thomas Kinkade, called "The Painter of Light "TM"" for his luminescent images of both beauty rendered and values portrayed, has been embraced by Americans nationwide. These core values of Marriage and Family, Children and Future Generations, Nature and the Environment, Spirituality, and Tradition have always been reflected in his artwork and espouse Kinkade's philosophy. Now in "Lightposts for Living". Kinkade explains how readers can transform their lives by following 12 simple principles, or "lightposts", that illuminate these core values. These include: Living in the light of simplicity, the light of selflessness, and the light of thankfulness, as well as living in the cozy light of home and living in the light of unfolding miracles.

Like the beloved artist Norman Rockwell, painter Thomas Kinkade emphasizes what is good and kind in America. His paintings of old-fashioned homes and ideal landscapes may not ever be considered high art--but they can certainly capture the heart and soothe the eye, and for many of his devout fans, that's plenty.
Now Kinkade sets his sights on writing about the core values that his paintings have illuminated for years--home, tradition, family, nature, and above all else, living in the light. By sharing personal stories and numerous analogies to his painter's process, Kinkade has developed a comfortable, fireside-chat manner. He offers advice and inspirational suggestions on chapter topics such as, "The Abundance of Enough, Living in the Light of Simplicity;" "Saying Grace, Living in the Light of Thankfulness;" and "A Radiant Sunrise, Living in a Romantic Light." Mostly, Kinkade seems to want readers to create a more beautiful, serene, and joyful life, as if they could be transported into the idyllic world of his paintings. While this may seem like a naive agenda, it is a soothing notion, and one that many fans would certainly enjoy imagining. --Gail HudsonAbout the Author :
