Kinkade's mass appeal stems from his unique ability to emphasize simple pleasures and convey inspirational messages. Through its paintings, The Thomas Kinkade Story is an intriguing look at the artists life and work. Each period in Kinkade's career is examined: from his early days as he meets the mentors and friends who will influence him; through the 80s, when he becomes a recognized painter; and through the 90s, as he paints groundbreaking scenes of Northern California, and then progresses from his English Cottage period to his use of soft light and color at the turn of the millennium.
