World-famous artist Thomas Kinkades wife and girlfriend are battling over his tens of millions of dollars, each laying claim to the late painters vast real estate holdings.

Fifty-four-year-old painter Thomas Kinkade was dating Amy Pinto-Walsh when he died in April of an alcohol and valium overdose. He had been separated for two years from his wife of 30 years, Nanette Kinkade.

first of all, the TV ad was that none are more than $69

what they convienently do not tell you is that the frames for the sofa sized paintings cost another $75

and yes, I bought one this past winter for over my sofa

I like the colors
