Artist Comments

My husband and I visited Devils Tower National Monument in the summer of 2016. This place is a unique geological rock tower which rises above the grassy plains of northeast Wyoming. At the time we were vacationing in Rapid City, South Dakota and since the tower was within driving distance of our hotel, we simply could not pass up the opportunity to visit this “one-of-a-kind natural wonder.”

Devils Tower could be seen from miles away as we made our approach to the national park. Upon arriving at our destination we drove through the 2.1 square mile park which surrounded the monument. We couldn’t help but notice the tower as it was the centerpiece of the park. It looked like a giant granite tree stump with a flat summit and fluted sides.

Devils Tower stands more than 867 feet from its base to the summit and measures approximately 180 feet by 300 feet at the top and is about a mile in circumference at the base. Around the base of the tower is a 1.25-mile self-guided hiking trail that provided us with spectacular close-up views of the tower. There was another much wider 3-mile trail that also loops around the tower, but we didn’t take that one. We spent a better part of the day there exploring and learning all we could about the tower before heading back to the hotel. All-in-all it was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Why “Devils Tower” and Not “Devil’s Tower”?

Devils Tower was declared America’s first official national monument by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1906. Originally it was called “Devil’s Tower” with an apostrophe, however, somewhere along the way the apostrophe was dropped due to clerical error and was never corrected. To this day it is still called Devils Tower with no apostrophe.

African Wildlife — Three Giraffes

Africa wildlife giraffes commission painting

Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A realistic composition of three wild African giraffes on the open planes of the Serengeti. This painting was commissioned work and has sold, however, if you desire a something similar, Teresa Bernard does commissions.  Click on the link for more information.


Hi Teresa, we received the paintings. They’re beautiful! Thank you very much. Our eldest will love the giraffes. — G. Callan, San Diego CA


Artist Comments: This painting was a commission painting I was asked to paint for an art collector.  My customer wanted to present it to his adult daughter as a Christmas gift. I found this painting to be a challenging one as I had never painted giraffes before. I put a lot of thought into how to approach it before putting paintbrush to canvas. It required studying giraffes from all different angles paying special attention to their spots. (If you want to call them spots, that is. They are more like splotches.) I observed that no two giraffes are identical in their “spots”. Nevertheless when the painting was completed and shipped to his residence, my customer contacted me to let me know his daughter loved it.

This work of art is one of five Africa themed paintings I was commissioned by this particular art collector. The links below will take you to the other paintings that are part of this commissioned group.

Other paintings of Africa that I’ve created are found in my blog article called Adventures In Africa Collection.

Artist Comments

This painting is one of several mini paintings I’ve composed.  I decided to do some smaller paintings as a way to attract a wider range of buyers and collectors for my art pieces. So I purchased a supply of 6×6 inch stretched canvases and started composing my mini paintings on them. I work on the mini canvases along side the larger paintings when I paint, thus working on both sized artworks during the same painting session.  I had no idea how much I would enjoy creating these miniature paintings until I started doing them.

Artist Comments

In the summer of 2016, the same year the American Bison was officially declared America’s national mammal, we made a trip to Rapid City, South Dakota on a family vacation. While there we made it a point to visit Custard State Park where several herds of American bison roam freely. We just had to see these magnificent animals up close and we were not disappointed. As we drove through the park, we were privileged to watch a herd of the largest mammal in North American cross the road just a few feet a head of our vehicle. They simply took my breath was taken away. I was so tempted to exit the car and approach them, but that would not have been wise. They are massive wild animals that can become startled and behave aggressively to what they perceive is an approaching predator. Upon entering the park we were told to keep a safe distance and to be conscience of the fact this park is their home and we humans are the visitors, at least from the bison’s point of view. To this day bison are a favorite animal of mine and I’m simply amazed by them.

American Bison, Where Are They Today?

In the 1500’s there were an estimated 30 to 60 million bison living in North America. Today there are approximately 200,000 in all. They are considered endangered as a wild species and are being protected by the federal government. Bison live in all 50 states, including Native American lands, wildlife refuges, national parks and private lands. The top five states where bison can be found are: South Dakota (where the largest population is), Nebraska, Montana, Colorado, and Oklahoma. The largest herd of bison are in Yellowstone National Park where bison have continuously lived since prehistoric times. What makes Yellowstone’s bison herd so special is that they are pure blood descendants of the early bison that grazed on America’s grassy plains.

This little painting was a fun one to do. I like doing small paintings like this one as it allows me to work on several art pieces in the same painting session. Often times you will find me working on a large size canvas and also have several small or mini paintings like this one going at the same time.
