His art work was displayed this weekend at the Precious Moments Convention Center in Carthage. Butcher's paintings ranged from abstract to dancers and performers. Each of his pictures are oil on canvas and feature bright and vivid colors. Precious Moments sales associate Peggy Wiseman says Butcher was private about some of his art work and has decided to show it to inspire young artists.
"Mr. Butcher has always been one to share to his artwork. Just yesterday he sat down with a young man who was a future artist to be and was giving him some inspiring words." Said Peggy Wiseman, Sales Associate.
Wiseman says people can see Butcher's art work during third thursday in Joplin and fourth friday in Carthage.
