painting  with focus on "authenticity" of late 1800s.  This commissioned work went into a
private collection in Oklahoma.  
Artist WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THIS TEXAS RESIDENT:
This photo was published in a newspaper article in The HOUSTON
POST circa 1978
with a write-up on Rush and his artwork (including
this portrait and images of his western paintings).  It is the wish of the
artist to obtain a digital image of this portrait.
 "This newspaper
picture does not show subject's striking skin tones,
jewelry color, or the details of the faceted glass
beads in her hair.
 The portrait was commissioned
by her Mother
."
ARE YOU THE BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THIS PORTRAIT?
OR
DO YOU KNOW HER?
DID YOU BUY THIS PORTRAIT OF PAUL NEWMAN
starring in "Buffalo Bill And The Indians" - United Artists.
Clipping from another newspaper interview
with the Artist upon completion of the Paul
Newman portrait in 1976.  This Oil Painting
was displayed in the
Alabama Theater Lobby
(
Houston, Texas) for the first week of the
movie's Premier.

"An individual purchased the portrait through
negotiations with the owner of Kay's Art
Gallery for whom I produced portraits.  
Unfortunately the buyer's name was not
obtained
."

Artist will travel anywhere within U.S. to
personally meet the portrait's owner in order
to take quality digital photos of this
very
colorful
painting.

[In 1995, the Houston Post ceased operations, leaving the
Chronicle as Houston's only major daily newspaper, and the
35mm negatives from these interviews are no longer available
The art gallery closed upon death of the owner.]
