"New Strange Things Will Happen" #5,782, 1986.  Artist: Howard Finster

"New Strange Things Will Happen" Artist: Howard Finster Best titled painting I've come across!

Jean Dubuffet (French, 1901~1985)

What I LOVE about Jean Dubuffet was his tenacity. He may have quit a few times but he went back to his love, he went back to art. It is easy to just give up and decide we just can't do something because it is hard or because a few roadblocks have.

Southern folk art is about putting downimages on the most available things. Alan St. James Boudreaux renders The Chicken Man with paint on a tin pan. It's cool -- and green.

Like father, like son. This is Howard Finster, as painted by his son, Roy, also a folk artist. I have Roy Finster's painting of Marilyn Monroe in my collection. I especially like that Roy loves to put lots of words in his pictures.  Makes me wonder if he talks a lot, too.

Henry Darger's illustrations - the inspiration behind Shrimp's collection. Significant to art because of his watercolor paintings and dark past that is reflected clearly in his work.
