ETCHING * RUSH STYLE*:  (16"x12" SCRATCHBOARD) "Winter Moonlight - Wolf Rock Ranch" commissioned by
Attorney William A. Allen who's Texas Ranch is named after the nocturnal and rare animal.  Note the 3D effect of matted hair and
the clarity of the eyes.  For these qualities, Rush is commissioned often to do portraits of pets.
Commissioned Memorial Portrait of  Mr. Geo. W. Strunk Jr., WWII Veteran.  This highly detailed work is created on a bed of white clay-coated
formica, covered with India Ink;
then the ink is laboriously 'scratched away' with a stylus to reveal the image.   This 16"x12" ETCHING called
'SCRATCHBOARD'
, is truly a 'lost Art' today.
Of this arduous rendering, Rush says: "Sadly, this is the only Portrait for which I was never paid my Commission.  Even more
unforeseeable - it was commissioned by Mr. Strunk's daughter.
" (She being one of the two people who later would senselessly poison the
woody-plants and shrubs under and around
The Artist's *Fiddle Tree*.)  [See pics in Art Gallery 10, lower half of the page for more details]
Watercolor: "Deep Winter" (18"X22" Framed & Dbl Matted)  Often confused as Oil,
Casein, Gouache, or Egg Tempera - Rush uses Winsor & Newton or Grumbacher

W
atercolors, made in England, on 500 Lb Cold Press paper to achieve this amazing
realism.  (Note the fine 'powder' of sleet and
the clear icicles on the stump)
Oil On Canvass:  "Dawn Arrivial - Tahiti" (4 ft x 5 ft)   Rush preps his own canvass then works with Rembrandt or Grumbacher oils to render
powerful
color-&-light blended works like this - now in the private collection of Houston Attorney & Yachtsman L.H. (Stu) Stewart.
