Outsider Artist

This is a painting that I bought at the North Texas Arts & Jazz Festival. I usually hate these kinds of things because of all the crappy art, but this time I was pleasantly surprised. This is a painting by Harry Messer. He died last January in a nursing home where he had been living because of his severe schizophrenia. I think he was 53 when he passed. The lady I bought this painting from inherited them from Harry when he passed. All his paintings are religious themed and this seemed the best of the lot. This is titled "The Rapshure Like A Thief in The Night" Check out the detail in this painting: all the people walking across the streets and cars with headlights on. Not to mention all the detailed brand logos. Hope you like it as much as I do.
Have a good day,
A. Barker
