The first, according to a transcription furnished earlier this month by Pinto-Walsh’s lawyers, reads: “I, Thomas Kinkade, being of sound mind and body do hereby bequeath to Amy Pinto Walsh $10,000,000 in cash from my corporate policy and I give her the house at 16342 Ridgecrest Avenue for her security.”

The second note states that along with the house, Pinto-Walsh, 48, should be given $10 million to establish the “Thomas Kinkade Museum” at the mansion “for the public display in perpetuity of original art.”

Pinto-Walsh’s lawyer, Sonia Agee, will ask the court to carry out those instructions. Agee will also seek legal authority for Pinto-Walsh to oversee $66.3 million from Kinkade’s estate.

Pinto-Walsh’s lawyers filed court papers June 11 stating that she and Kinkade had planned to marry in Fiji as soon as his divorce went through.

Nanette Kinkade has painted Pinto-Walsh in court papers as a gold-digger who is trying to cheat the artist’s rightful heirs. After Kinkade’s death, she obtained a restraining order prohibiting the other woman from talking publicly about the artist. That confidentiality agreement is also the subject of court proceedings.
