Artist Comments

This is one of my earlier paintings of Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. This little fishing village surrounds a narrow ocean inlet which provides a safe haven for boats during the Atlantic’s rough weather. It is one of the most popular tourist stops in Nova Scotia and is the most photographed location in Canada.

Your Feedback

“I’m a family doctor in a small town in northern Maine. I really love all your paintings. I’m so taken with the Peggy’s Cove painting – it’s so lovely. I grew up in Newfoundland where all the houses were painted a bright color to offset the grey weather that could otherwise be depressing. The red house and the ocean remind me of home. The painting brings a smile to my face.” — Janet B., Houlton ME

Artist Comments

This painting of the famous Garden Tomb is located in the Garden of Gethsemane near Jerusalem. It is one of two I’ve painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb.

Christians worldwide consider this place to be the actual burial and resurrection site of Jesus and not the renowned Church of The Holy Sepulcher. His crucifixion occurred at Golgotha, the “place of the skull,” 

The reason many believe this to be the site of the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is that it so clearly fits the description described in each of the Gospel accounts.

Site of the Crucifixion

    • Skull Rock outside the city walls of Jerusalem
    • Near a gate of the city
    • Along a busy thoroughfare
    • At a place of public execution
    • At the place of the skull – Golgotha
    • A garden nearby

Evidence regarding the site of the tomb is in Matthew 27:57-60.

    • Skull Rock located in a garden
    • Belonged to a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea
    • Cut out of the rock
    • Sealed with a rolling stone
    • Entered through a low doorway
    • Burial chamber situated to the right of the entrance

About this Garden Tomb Oil Painting

Title: The Garden Tomb
Size:
9″ x 12″
Support: Traditional-style Stretched canvas
Description: An oil painting of a famous Israeli garden visited by many every year. It depicts the Garden Tomb at Gethsemane. Hand-painted on quality stretched canvas and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

This painting is of a rock-cut tomb situated in the heart of the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem; it is one of my personal favorites. Many Christians believe this famous Israeli location to be the burial and resurrection place of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull. Being a devout Christian, this particular painting has a lot of personal meaning for me. It is one of two I’ve painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb at Sunset.

The Burial and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ

“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” Matthew 27:57-60

“He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6

Artist Comments

In the summer of 2000, a friend of mine made several business trips to Ireland. After he completed his work for the day, he would venture out into the nearby countryside and local communities to see the sites and take photos of his trip. This landscape painting is from a photo of one of the places he visited while there. It depicts Bunratty, a small folk village in southwest Ireland not far from Shannon and Limerick. The town gets its name from nearby Bunratty Castle, a prominent 15th-century tower house in County Clare, Ireland. The castle is a major tourist attraction famous for its medieval banquets. Bunratty Castle overlooks the Raite river, and the village lies just to the west of the castle. The castle and village are open to the public and feature around 30 buildings.

Fun Facts About Bunratty

    • Bunratty is an Irish word that means “End of the Raite River.”
    • The first settlement in Bunratty is thought to have been built by Vikings in the 10th century and possibly destroyed by an Irish king named Brian Boru.
    • The castle was built around 1277 by Mucegros, an Anglo-Norman ruler.
    • For a history of Bunratty Castle visit here.

Description: A depiction of a famous Oregon coast lighthouse. Hand-painted on stretched canvas and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

I find Oregon to be one of the most beautiful places in America. Having lived there for several years, “The Beaver State” has inspired numerous paintings of its scenery. Heceta Head Lighthouse is one of those paintings.

This ocean-view oil painting is of the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse, built between 1892-1893. Perched high on a bluff approximately 150 feet above the sea, it stands watch over the Oregon coast 2 miles north of the famous Sea Lion Caves. Its beam can be seen for 21 nautical miles making it the strongest light on Oregon’s coastline. Heceta Head Lighthouse is a favorite place for tourists as it is one of the most-visited lighthouses in the United States. The lighthouse offers visitors easy access and an outstanding view of the Oregon coastline and the Pacific Ocean.

I have been painting watercolor for 20 years now, but am always interested in the principles of design and was thrilled to see how much info. you are offering freely, as your father gave freely to you of his life. I especially love your painting of Heceta Head Lighthouse as I live just 15 min. down the road from there. You have captured it beautifully.

I was in Oregon last summer, your pictures of the Oregon coast by the sea lions is the best I have seen of that view. Your Heceta Head Lighthouse is just beautiful. I painted the coast picture also. You are an inspiration to me.” — Patricia B., Pontiac MI

About this Oregon Coast Painting

Title: Oregon Coast South of the Sea Lion Caves
Size:
9″ w x 12″ h
Support: Canvas panel board
Description: An oil painting of the Oregon coast looking south from the Sea Lion Caves. The waves have many different shades of blue and white caps. The painting has a very calming effect on the viewer.

This painting is composed on a quality canvas panel and does require a frame before it is displayed. Hand-painted and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

This ocean wave painting is one of my early pieces. It was painted when I was just getting started as a professional artist. The composition depicts the Oregon Coast as seen from the “Sea Lion Caves” looking south towards Cox Rock, one of the thousands of islands off the coast of Oregon.

The Sea Lion Caves are America’s largest sea caves and are located about halfway along Oregon’s 400 miles of coastline. It is accessible via the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway U.S. Highway 101. Visit the Sea Lion Caves website for more information.

There isn’t much information available about Cox Rock. I discovered that it is an island off the coast of Oregon that is difficult to find if you want to explore it. Visitors to the island will most likely want to use their GPS to get there.
