Famed painter Thomas Kinkade dead at age 54

Last Updated: 2:53 AM, April 7, 2012


Famed painter Thomas Kinkade is dead at the age of 54.

Kinkade died at his home in Los Gatos of what appeared to be natural causes, David Satterfield said.

His wife Nanette discussed his family's shock and sadness in a statement.

"Thom provided a wonderful life for his family," she said.

Kinkade was known for his use of light in his scenic paintings.

According to his website, he attended UC Berkeley and worked as an artist in the film industry before shifting his focus fully to painting.

During the past quarter-century, he's painted over 1,000 pieces – with many of his works showing nature scenes, gardens, seascapes and inspirational content.

RIP Thomas Kinkade. You will be missed.

I am a jigsaw puzzle junkie -- so many of his paintings were made into jigsaw puzzles. My favorite puzzles.

Thank you for all you have shared with us Mr Kinkade. Fly with the angels  an angelic monkey

How sad.  I had no idea TK had a mistress.  Puts a shadow on his ministry.

Another life lost to alcoholism.

The Santa Clara County Coroner released details of famed-artist Thomas Kinkade's autopsy and found that he died of "acute ethanol and Diazepam intoxication."

In layman's terms, he died of an overdose of alcohol and valium.

"Mr. Kinkade died of respiratory depression as a result of a high concentration of ethanol combined with benzodiazepine use," the report stated.

The manner of death was listed as an accident.
