I hope that all of you people out there (at least all nine of my beloved followers, who I wish I could shower with gifts) are familiar with Georgia folk artist Howard Finster - if not, please explore his artwork via Google Image search, etc. It's wonderful stuff! Recently Andrew surprised me with a trip to Paradise Gardens, Finster's home and art world, during Summerville's annual "Finster Fest" event. . It was such a fantastic trip and experience, I would strongly recommend it to anyone! Here are some of my pictures from the festival and pictures from Paradise Gardens will come in part 2!
