I have heard this lectured on by Dr Fine, an authority on Folk Art. I have discussed it many times. Here are my thoughts—–What makes a painting great and does it matter who the artist is? The answer to both is a resounding “Yes”. —And a signature matters greatly. Reverend Finster is a great folk artist and look at his colorful personality Look at Bernice Sims, a great folk artist who fought f…or Civil Rights. The Miracle Cross Gardens near Montgomery, Rev WC Rice–what a preacher and what a story—and I am not trying to push any artist but let us examine Steven Chandler, The Georgia Red Mud Artist–He is up and down and all over the place but he is a great artist and we will remember him and his work for a lifetime! —Such great artists and such stories that can be told as we, you and I, explain the painting and the story of the artist of the painting hanging on our walls. Yes, it does matter!!—olRoff
