Barbara Rudolph is an Arizona artist specializing in realism oil paintings that most often include a bird. Her painting backgrounds can be either realistic, or contemporary with design elements, but always to showcase the finest of details in her main subject. She will paint many layers, allowing each layer of oil paint to dry in between.
Barbara’s work is often sprinkled with an element of humor, She takes time to photograph and place each object within the scene she paints. “I enjoy getting absorbed in a new painting and letting it gradually reveal its own story”, she says. “The messages and symbolism in my work help to connect viewers to my subjects. I’m always thrilled when someone steps in for a closer look and responds with a laugh or smile.”
Barbara’s appreciation and desire to create art began at an early age. She later earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1990 from her home school of Arizona State University. She first entered the professional world of art through graphic design, which then led her to paint for a variety of fine art publishers for many years to come. She eventually opened her independent home studio where she now works full time.
For more than twenty five years, Barbara’s paintings have been on display in various galleries and also in private collections across the United States and Canada. She is a long standing member of the “International Guild of Realism.” Some of her recent works have been chosen as finalists in the prestigious “Art Renewal Center” Salon competition,” which is the leading revival of realism art.
“Art is such an integral part of my life. It brings me joy to be able to create paintings that bring happiness into people’s lives.”
