The Lyrics

This is number 20 parody of this stupid song, but I just had to. Mari and I love to go into one of this "artist's" shops and say loudly "Look Honey! This one has little tiny dots of REAL paint on the print!" And the other will say, "Yes did you know each one of those adds FIFTY dollars to the value!" And the other will say, Yes, and it was applied by an assistant apprentice artist who was trained by the head of mass production who has actually spoken to someone who know Mr. Kinkade himself!!!" At this point, we usually get asked to leave the store.
His paintings are quaint
But an artist he ain't, Kinkade
He's the richest alive
It's not talent, just drive, Kinkade
Go and buy, go and buy, go and buy

He's got shops everywhere
"Reproductions" in there, Kinkade
Find them there in the malls
Not on gallery walls, Kinkade
Don't ask why, don't ask why, don't ask why

It says "Painter of Light"
On his big copyright, Kinkade
The Lord's praises he'll sing
But his business is king, Kinkade
What a guy, what a guy, what a guy

For some tiny paint flecks
You will write out big checks, Kinkade
Just one nicely framed print
Will be costing a mint, Kinkade
Price is high, price is high, price is high
Mari's much better at this link thing.

If on cocaine you're high
You might buy something by


If your mind is on hold
You might just have been sold


Duncan writes,
such good lines,
'bout that guy...

Dear Mr. DUNCAN, In your recent PARODY you state that I USE ASSISTANT APPRENTICES who DOT MY PRINTS WITH PAINT, and HAVE NEVER EVEN MET ME. This is simply NOT true. I can assure you that I MEET THEM ALL PERSONALLY. I might add that, I am responding to YOUR INQUIRY myself. Yours truly, ***INSERT NAME HERE***.

I'm going to assume that "INSERT NAME HERE" is actually someone associated with th Kinkade Galleries and just happens to be a parody fan. As the latter, you surely know that exaggeration is the root of all parody and caricature. As far as assistants, Maybe the "Master" has met them all, but it is still a brilliant business idea, if not an artistic one to have someone put little flecks of paint on a print, then charge 5 times as much for the work. Very few people are wealthy or connected enough to actually own a real painting by this artist, who paints very attractive Christmas cards. This is America. Many a fortune has been made by great businessmen. Not by great artists. If this parody brought you to the site for the firts time, welcome! I'm sure you'll laugh hard at something that makes fun of someone else.

Rick D - I've on a short leash today with too much to do, too many places to go and too little time to do it. So you get the short version "Paul" comment (as you may notice, there really is no such thing). Good work. 5-5-5. See you on the 8th in San Jose. Making another copy of the Name/address of the place.

Someone with the Kinkade Galleries, or someone just yanking your chain?

Well, they spelled the name right, Jeff. Unlike me.

Jeff, I hear chains rattling. It's probably Bob Marley... um, Jacob Marley.

A friend of mine has been in his home. His walls are covered with real paintings...not his own. Obviously knows good art.

Perhaps my ignorance, but I have never heard of Kinkade. Nice job - well written.

Kinkade is a well know present day artist, who mass produces his pantings and limited edition prints. He owns his own galleries, and has personal control of his monster marketing plan. Many in the art world consider him a sell-out, because of his non-traditional methods of business. You may have seen his work . Usally he paints homes, pastures, meadows and landscapes, and I do recall a few lighthouses, a seascapes. All very pleasant visuals, and all very deliberate and all very predictable.
Pretty pictures, yes... worth the investment, probably not.
Great Work Rick! Very original topic!

Great Googamoo, Mr. D, that was the best we could do to simulate a merged E-mail letter, without being able to format the fonts. Sorry you didn't get it. LOL. 555

A friend of mine liked Kincaid (okay, so nobody's perfect) and she used to scan the pictures from the catalogues, reprint them on her inkjet, frame them and hang them... yin and yang...
