Modern day Rockwell?

Hi Friends;
  I just noticed that Thomas Kinkade has died at the very young age of 54.  His work was prolific, to say the least, and nearly everyone could find something that was nice for them.  Earth shaking, art defining, breath taking, perhaps not.  But, his art was quiet, alive, and fascinating in of itself.  And, quite commercial.  Here is an example of his work.  He uses bright colors to capture the attention, but not so much as to overload the senses.  It's sad to know that he is leaving us so soon.  I've often wondered if he did other types of art.  Anyone know the answer to that?
Thomas Kinkade, passed on at age 54.
