These messages often took the form of Bible verses that were hidden in the imagery. His core audience was conservative and Christian, as were the investors who ultimately felt betrayed when his expanding gallery empire left a trail of bankruptcies as his market became oversaturated.

The only place he ever really felt at home was at his easel, painting. Painting helped keep the demons at bay, and it paid for a sense of security that his early years lacked. He invented a trick that would have made Andy Warhol jealous. If his factory approach to art seems Warholian, it did not go unnoticed by Kinkade, who cited Warhol as a major influence.

This issue was resolved by including a drop of his blood into the ink used to print his signature. At the height of his empire, loading docks in warehouses the size of multiple football fields were stacked ceiling-high with framed editions packed in cardboard boxes. His story begins in a single-wide trailer, where he and two siblings were raised by their mother only. A recurring motif in tales of this period involved watching to see if mom had any groceries with her when she returned home from her jobs.
