just found these photos in a box in the basement. in 1998 chris and i busted down to georgia on spring break and went to athens. on the way back we went to howard finster's paradise garden. he was still alive then and his teenage niece was working the register at the office. we didn't see him, but he was supposed to preach the next day. i recently started looking at a book i have about this guy's paintings and sculptures. he was a man possessed. a truly magical and mystical place. i want to go back!
