I am a person who only kind of dabbled in the arts as a kid. Well, I did stuff, but I was never very great at it! I tried, anyway. I guess if nothing else, I found a love and appreciation for the arts that makes me really happy when I see it, even if I can't DO it.
Linda Hoover is an artist from Houstonia, Missouri. She is painting a mural pointing the way to the "MO50" art exhibit at the Missouri State Fair, and she's quite talented.

Because it was done in a style that resembles graffiti, also known as "street art"
