Painter Thomas Kinkade, 54, RIP

Painter Thomas Kinkade works on a landscape painting of Lake Coeur d'Alene from a hillside where builders will begin a series of luxury homes based on his paintings.  Kinkade said each house will come with a print of the painting.  At a media event Saturday, June 17, 2006, the builders and Kinkade plugged the idea and showed off the lakeview property.
