Artist Jean Dubuffet

What I LOVE about Jean Dubuffet was his tenacity. He may have quit a few times but he went back to his love, he went back to art. It is easy to just give up and decide we just can't do something because it is hard or because a few roadblocks have.

Bill Traylor, Blue Cat, 1939-1942.  In only three years, between 1939 and 1942, Bill Traylor—former slave, factory worker, and homeless welfare recipient, who slept on a wooden pallet inside the [Ross-Clayton Funeral Parlor in Montgomery, Alabama]—created his own extraordinary history of drawing in 1,800 images. Most were preserved by his friend and fellow artist, Charles Shannon.

William "Bill" Traylor (April 1854 – October was a self-taught artist born into slavery on a plantation belonging to George Hartwell Traylor near Benton, in Lowndes County, Alabama.

Ex Votos are votive offerings of gratitude for a vow or prayer fulfilled. Votive offerings in general are given before prayer fulfillment, they are given as appeasement, or veneration for forces beyond humankind. All types of votive offering occur around the globe from ancient to current times. These ex voto examples are from Mexico and Spain. They depict an experience and the subject of the votive offering, to thank e.g. a deity for sparing their lives or livelihoods.
