ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Ruby Jean Butler

From the day I was born, my mother always said I was “adventurous.” I do believe, I came by this naturally. My daddy, born in Texas, was a working cowboy, a Methodist Circuit Rider and an artist. Also a survivor of WWI Action. Mother was a teacher, a “suffragette,” and a musician. So I was born for action, adventure and positive thinking.

I was also born into a heritage of love, respect, faith in God and deep thought and prayer. My two sisters and I were taught we could have different ideas and disagreements, but never go to bed angry. “Always forgive and forget.”

 


My artwork, a small collection of pictures and assembled in Photoshop, touches on these feelings and special images representative of my life. This is a tiny sample from ages 2 to 78 of my life’s adventure.
