51. Kinkaide was an amazing artist who sold out


He and James Gurney traveled around living in their car doing sketches and paintings. A lot of his personal work is absolutely mind blowing good but he sold out to do fluffy cottage stuff the general public would like to make money and the monster got away from him. I am sure he was never happy because he wasn't doing what he loved but what made money.

That being said, the guy had a rough unhappy life and I really don't see what good it is to pile-on a guy who was tortured in life and is dead now. Even though he sold out his work touched a lot of people very deeply. This should be a lesson about doing what you love and not selling out for $.
