1000 and 57 paintings


Howard Finster, the famous preacher/artist from Summerville, Ga., supposedly made more than 46,000 works of art before leaving Paradise Garden for Paradise in 2001. Most of his paintings are numbered. This one, "tractor enamel" on wood, #1,057, completed in December 1979, would be considered fairly early. The frame is funky, with butterflies in the corners and dot decoration. Plenty of preaching on the clouds and on the back (second photo).
