Local artist completes 365 paintings in a year

Local artist completes 365 paintings in a yearRebecca Butler has completed her self-challenge to do a painting a day for a year.

Her bright, lusciously saturated and whimsical watercolor paintings have been posted daily on social media hash tagging this feat to promote her art biz, Murals by Becca. Her exhibit is scheduled for Nov. 18, from 6 to 9 p.m., and Nov. 19, from noon to 5 p.m. The venue is HARRISART, located at 4432 SW 74 Ave. in the Bird Road Arts District.

A local author Rafael Lima — Zero Point, Screenwriter, Believe and more, client of Murals by Becca, said of her challenge: “Damn, she keeps pulling artistic rabbits out of hats like a magician. Only she does it every day. Her stuff is vibrant and original with an essence of the Caribbean. Beautiful work!”

Her challenge was brought on by the desire to share the diversity a mural artist needs to have for her client’s wishes. Deliciously colorful nautical, whimsical, flora, fauna and exotic underwater subjects are her expertise, yet her website muralsbybecca.com shows her range. When re-launching her business after a four-year sail in the Caribbean with her husband, it was necessary to paint. She is an artist after all, client or not, so paint she did.

    Amazing! Becca is a rare talent that South Florida is very lucky to have! Take the time to view her vibrant, energetic, and eclectic style… You will NOT be sorry you did!

    I guess I’m biased because I know Becca personally and know her effervescence and perseverance. Her artistic talent is simply innate. It’s in her blood. I am so glad she’s back doing what she loves best full time! I urge all to visit her exhibit. You’re in for a real treat!

  4. Becca’s paintings are colorful, bright, fun and imaginative. We are very much looking forward to visiting her exhibit and see her latest works in person!
