Mary Butler, paintings

I paint to express my love for color, movement and family. I did not choose to be a Western artist. Being from a third generation of Idaho ranchers, I inherited it. Personally, I call my style “Funky Western”. It is expressionistic and impressionistic painting in oils and watercolors. I love the feel of a loaded brush moving across the canvas as it leaves a clean stroke of paint, the sensation of a painting coming together, and the anticipation of the next painting.
