I think that his McArtwork is more offensive than any DUI. The crappy prints that he sells as "semi-original" or "quasi-paintings" or whatever he calls them are a flat out insult to art buyers.This man is a joke.A drunken joke that is.

Commercial garbage. Hardly surprising given the obvious complete lack of any real talent. "Painter of Crap". If I sold all that kitsch under the guise of art, I would probably drink too.

does anyone still have his junk hanging on their walls? I saw a couple of his prints at a garage sale in Pollock Pines sitting next to an old Nagel

A "drunk" or not, his paintings are great in terms of skill, and are quite intense in regards to the mood & atmosphere they give off as a whole. The fact that he's apparently a drunk is a shame, it is something no one should ever allow themselves to become. But to veer off-topic to insult & degrade a man's talent is low, to say the very least.

The fact that this clown from New York would start gushing about our local garbage painter is funny.He must own one of the franchised "art stores" that Kincaid has spread across the US.Can't he put his talents to better use and does he have to sell prints as "original".What a joke
