Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden

On the way to Tennessee, Dean and I stopped off at Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden in Summerville. Oh man! This is a must-see for anyone in or around North Georgia. Finster used his art to spread the gospel but his vision is so joyful and inspirational, it transcends religion. Every painting, sculpture, and structure emits the warm fuzzies.
