I've always been a bit befuddled by the incredible popularity of Thomas Kinkade. As an amateur painter, I certainly admire his technical competence. Nevertheless, I frankly admit that I find his subject matter boring. Apparently, though, collectors who are willing to pay 300 grand for an original piece would disagree. I am equally surprised that your reporter quoted Kinkade ("Kinkade lets light shine through his art," Nov. 20) as saying that his works have been compared with Norman Rockwell.

Thanks to the News-Press for taking the time to attend our meeting and supporting the needs of Montrose. I can speak only for myself as owner of Whites Art Store and Gallery, but the majority of merchants in Montrose are struggling very hard in a very competitive marketplace. We all agree that this little "Mayberry" is the perfect small town. We all agree that we need to cater to kids and families and dogs and good ol' clean America. Norman Rockwell probably hovers directly overhead on a good day. But as a merchant, I need all the help I can get to keep people shopping here.

Janine Marnien MONTROSE -- Once open only to professional men employed by corporations like Boeing, the Business Men's Art Institute has come a long way -- literally.

Nancy Turney As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, it gives us a time not only to reflect on what we have to be thankful for, but also to think about how our attitude influences the way we perceive the circumstances in our lives. Maybe your Thanksgiving celebration is one which Norman Rockwell would have painted for a Saturday Evening Post cover. You know the kind; several generations of family all gathered together, well-behaved children, the perfect turkey, etc. Or, maybe you sat alone with a frozen turkey dinner.

Jenna Bordelon DOWNTOWN -- Popular artist Thomas Kinkade brought his message of giving to an eager crowd of admirers, armed with cameras and ready to be awed, Sunday at the Glendale Galleria. Flanked by his works, "English Countryside" and "Cobblestone Bridge," Kinkade made it clear to an appreciative audience his paintings are meant to spread happiness. "The only thing that will let darkness go away is to let the light shine," he said to a scattering of applause.

Gretchen Hoffman Michel Gagne doesn't always encourage people to follow their dream of self-publishing their comics. "If you just want to do one book or two books, go get a publisher," he said. "You should self-publish only if you're in it for the long haul." Gagne should know what he's talking about -- he quit his job in 1998 to found GAGNE International Press and has been writing, illustrating and publishing books and comics ever since. He and five other comics professionals took part in a panel discussion, "Animators Do Comics," at Glendale Central Library on Wednesday night.

GRANT GORDON "I was showing the America I know and observed to others who might not have noticed." -- Norman Rockwell It depends upon your preference, I guess. Timbuktu, out in the boondocks, parts unknown for you wrestling fans or whatever your choice in reference to that small town that nobody knows about all applied to Phelan. Phelan, close as I can figure, being Latin for, "the capital of the middle of nowhere." As it relates to this area, it was the final destination for the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team.

My fellow columnist, Patrick Azadian, recently wrote a nice piece about art appreciation, and it is obvious that he has developed a fine appreciation and, I must confess, a more critical eye than myself. Some of my more sophisticated friends have described my tastes as simple and untrained, and I am the first to agree. One of my favorite artists is Norman Rockwell, and in some circles that would automatically disqualify me as a serious appreciator of true art. Which leads me to ask, with some trepidation, what is true art?

Past two years have been good for those visiting Montrose Someone could have made a picture postcard in Montrose on Sunday [March 14]. It would have looked something like a Norman Rockwell painting with kids at play, riding on ponies, sliding on slides, and old-timers greeting one another in embraces of friendship of years gone by, and parents looking on thoughtfully, and city officials and civic leaders from the community giving speeches and making proclamations.
