You’ve Heard of Landscaping for your yard… but have you heard of Artscaping?

As one art festival after the other shut down it made local artist and past Historic Roswell (GA) gallery owner, Barbara Rush a little sad to think about how many art enthusiasts and artists were affected.

From her art studio window, where she painted while “sheltering-in-place”, she watched neighbors and local people walking past her house on their way to Big Creek Park. Obviously everyone was going stir crazy from sheltering-in-place and everyone needed a little outdoor time.

That’s when it occurred to her that she could give people another excuse to get outside, yet still observe the social distancing mandates…she could hang some of her art out in her front yard for the enjoyment of her neighbors, friends, and passersby to enjoy.

Art festivals are important community events. They provide people with an opportunity to do something that uplifts, inspires, stimulates conversations, while being outside. There’s nothing like the combination of a beautiful day, fresh air, and ART!

One thing lead to another and before long she created a small display with art spaced a significant distance from each other so that people could use social distancing while looking at her art. She was right, it was just what the community needed…a splash of color and a little more joy in their day. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, with many thank yous, and slower traffic as people cruise by in their cars to look. She also answers visitors questions about her work, through her face mask, while maintaining a 6 ft distance.

Barbara Rush is a local Roswell, GA artist, and past Historic Roswell Gallery Owner (2007-2018). She created her GeoCubist style in 2004-2006 after a visit to a Cubist exhibit at the High Museum (Atlanta GA), and has been painting and selling art since 2007. A master of color and movement, Ms. Rush, uses her artistic genius to create unique paintings of animals that will enliven the walls of your home or office…like a breath of fresh air.

For more information about her work please visit www.BarbaraRush.com. If you live in the Atlanta Area and would like to view hew Artscaping please request information at br@BarbaraRush.com

It’s Official – I’m the Official Artist for the Mayfaire 2020!

Swan Lake Painting
Infused with Grace by Barbara Rush the official icon for Mayfaire 2020.

This beautiful painting is a tribute to the four varieties of swans living in Lakeland: mute white swans, black swans, black neck swans, and coscoroba swans. When you visit, you will see the swans in beautiful black, white and grey, I used the three colors of the swans and added the beautiful teal, lavender, purple and grey blues, setting it on a lovely lake-like background.

Lake Morton, is home to over 70 swans that are the descendants of a pair of swans from Queen Elizabeth II’s world-famous collection in England. Over the course of the weekend, as I sat with my art at the show on Lake Morton, several of my customers told me the story of the swans in the lake.

Great 10′ x10′ Tent for Artists with Free Shipping!

I found a really nice reasonably priced, sturdy tent on Amazon with FREE shipping! I really wanted a Light Dome but gosh $1500 for a tent is pretty steep. So in the mean time, I bought this one and am very happy with it! The side walls are much better than the EZup although a little short if you raise the tent up to 7′. It’s waterproof and comes with a fantastic roller bag, sand bags, AND an AWNING! The awning is fantastic and this weekend I’m going to use the awning arms to hang my banner sign above my tent! You can click on the link above for more info about the tent. I read many other tent product descriptions before purchasing this one.

The Chrysler Museum, Norfolk VA

I grew up going to the Chrysler Museum near my home town of VA Beach, VA. Whenever I’m home I go with my parents, or siblings. This past Christmas my mom, sister and I were able to escape for a few hours and we visited a few of my favorite pieces.

Chrysler Museum Norfolk, VA
Did you know Picasso created more than 600 designs for plates, bowls, vases, and jugs. A few of them are in a hallway at the Chrysler. I really enjoy the fact that such a great master artist would enjoy seeing his work on plates and other useful things. Personally, I want to see my art on everything imaginable and have developed designs for 30 or so products on my Zazzle shop. I have over 60 items in my shop…everything from pillows to tote bags, and, bottle openers to luggage:-)

I really love to design…must be my background as a graphic designer!

Happy New Year to you and yours:-)
