REFLECTIONS: THAT TIME AGAIN……

July 29, 2014 Well, the kids are getting ready to go back to school. I remember when we would get back to school after Labor Day in September, but now it seems that these kids are going back earlier every year. College students are getting ready to choose and apply which school, university, or technical college they want to attend. Summers not over yet. You still have time to get the last surf in, take in the scenery at the beach, to finish up that book you’ve planned to read and to be done with, or whatever. I’m trying to enjoy … Continue reading REFLECTIONS: THAT TIME AGAIN……

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST JULY 2014: HOWARD FINSTER

July 16, 2014 Hello! Tuomas Korpi was going to be this month’s Spotlight Artist, but that will be saved for August. So I decided that it will be the late Howard Finster. I saw this man’s work at the High Museum in Atlanta back in April. Finster was not only an artist, but he was also a Baptist minister. He said that he was inspired by God to spread the gospel through designing the historic art folk site, Paradise Garden, which is located Summerville Georgia.   Finster created visionary, outsider, and naïve art. At the age of 13, he became … Continue reading SPOTLIGHT ARTIST JULY 2014: HOWARD FINSTER
