Photo Gallery: Thomas Kincaid visits Prescott
Thomas Kinkade, "The Painter of Light," came to Prescott Sunday and wooed more than 500 fans at the Elk's Opera House. Kinkade sketched a cottage scene during his talk and auctioned it for $12,000 for the Make-a-Wish-Foundation. Kinkade and his wife, Nanette, who made a rare personal appearance, wrote personal inscriptions on the backside of paintings that people bought during his show, or that they brought with them from home. Dee Blaschke, owner of the Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery in Prescott, organized the event.
