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:-)
