an angel

altho not into his message I always liked Howard Finster's art.  so when I visitd Paradise Garden in july 1991 I bought one of his angels. I gave his wife a check for $380. I didn't meet the artist because at that time he was sleeping during the day & making art at nite.

this is me at his famous residence with my purchase:

at first look I've been unable to locate any photos of the piece hanging in the house in Kent. but here is the first photo I have of it in Santa Fe (1994). that's James Broughton in the rocker:

this morning I took the piece down. it's one of a group of artworks which will be having a new home. details forthcoming.
