Ruth Russell Williams of Henderson relies on her memory of a rural upbringing as the source and inspiration for her paintings. Williams, who never had any formal art instruction, began painting some thirty years ago â€œas a way to try something new.â€ Her work has been compared by some to that of Grandma Moses. Williams's work is much in demand, and large originals can sell for $6,000. Television shows buy prints to use on their sets; a Mazda commercial featured one; and a recently published book, FORTY ACRES AND A MULE, will feature a painting on the cover.
