Howard Finster was a unique individual on this earth. His art is crude but captivating. His body of work is enormous and he is an inspiration to me of someone who melded their art and their faith. While I was living in Pensacola, Art on the Tracks had a showing of his work. We (the artists) created a piece to send to Howard for inclusion in his Paradise Gardens. Somewhere in the garden is a piece of art with a little sketch by me on it. Howard passed away some time ago. We miss you on earth Howard but God must be truly blessed to have you hanging around plucking your "banjer" and telling stories.
