About The Garden Cottage Painting

painting with a garden cottage

Title: The Garden Cottage
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A landscape painting depicting the side view of a yellow garden cottage with a window framed in white trim. In the foreground, a white picket fence and pink flowers run across the front of the cottage. The painting is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.

This painting is hand-painted on stretched gallery wrap canvas. Its small size makes it ideal for small spaces or areas with limited space. Because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas, it does not need to be framed before being displayed. If you prefer to have it mounted in a frame, it will look great in your home, office, or anywhere else it is displayed.

Artist Comments

This painting’s composition is a close-up of the side of a garden cottage. I thought it would be interesting to crop out as much of the original scenery as possible so that the focus would be solely on a few elements—the window, siding, picket fence, and some flowers. This turned out really well. I’ve used this method before. Below are the other paintings in which I used a tight crop to achieve the desired effect.

Artist Comments

This Tractor Tire painting was a little bit of an experiment for me. I like to give myself challenges from time to time. For this particular challenge, I wanted to see if I could paint rubber and make it look like rubber. I believe I achieved that goal.

What I like best about this painting are the various textures present in it the composition — the wood, the rubber, and even the rusted metal rim. It was an enjoyable challenge painting all those textures and getting them just right. In addition, there are warm colors that contrast against the cool ones. There are so many interesting things going on in this painting; it was a lot of fun to paint!

This painting would be the perfect art piece for the man cave, especially if you love farm tractors or cars. I can imagine no one would have ever thought a tractor tire would be the focal point for a painting.

Artist Comments

For those who may not know this and for those who do, we Texans are a proud bunch and we love our state. One way we show our Texas pride is by painting our beloved flag on our barns and outbuildings for all to see. It would be a rare thing indeed to travel throughout the Lone Star State and not see a barn or some other outbuilding painted up with the Texas Flag.

The barn in the painting above is a well-known landmark on US Highway 377, just east of Stephenville, Texas.

About the Texas Flag

Flag of TexasThe Texas flag, also known as the “Lone Star Flag,” was adopted in 1845 when Texas became the 28th state. It is a rectangle that has a width to length ratio of two to three. It has a vertical blue field of color and two horizontal color fields, one white and the other red. The flag also sports a single white star which is located in the center of the blue field. This lone star symbolizes “ALL of Texas and stands for our unity as one for God, state, and country.”

Each color field in the flag symbolizes the following:

    • Blue stands for loyalty
    • White represents purity
    • Red is for bravery

Artist Comments

This oil painting is part of a series of paintings about what life is like in the great state of Texas. Round hay bales are one of the most iconic images of rural America. These farm-fresh bales represent the hard work and dedication required to provide for our country.

Cattle ranchers abound here in east Texas, and since cattle and other farm animals need food, we also have a lot of hay farmers. Everywhere you go, if you don’t see cattle or horses grazing in a large pasture, you’ll most likely see hay growing there, or you’ll see hay that has been harvested and baled.

Hay farmers harvest their hay using equipment called balers. Balers can bale (package) hay in various ways — small rectangle bales, large square or rectangular bales, or large round bales. The large round bales can weigh anywhere from 800 to over 1,500 pounds! When they are that heavy, they have to be moved around with hay forks attached to tractors.

Many cattlemen prefer the round bales instead of small rectangle bales as they are less labor-intensive to store and transfer and easier to feed to their cattle. They place these large round bales inside hay rings so their cattle and horses can graze on them for days. However, small farms and ranches may still use the smaller rectangle hay bales since they have fewer heads of cattle to feed.
