Baptism - Ruth Robinson
Ruth Robinson puts a powerful story in every work of art she produces. This piece tells the story of baptism and renewal through vibrant paint and imagery. Ruth used acrylic paint on a small slab of concrete that measures 8.25" x 3.75".
Ruth Robinson grew up in Grand Bay, AL on a farm growing corn, picking cotton, and raising chickens and farming with a mule. She started painting at the age of 8. During her teenage years, all of her paintings were lost in a tragic housefire. Ruth didn’t begin painting again until the year 2000, while taking care of her elderly parents. Ruth’s paintings are about the people from her past and present, and especially her family. For the people in her past, she brings them back to life in her paintings. She paints on canvas and also small objects and furniture like chairs, tables, and almost anything she can find that’s made of wood or metal.
