Artist Comments

A Boy and His Dog is a painting reminiscent of the happiest times in life when we were carefree and simple things amazed us. Sometimes life gets so complicated that it’s nice to stop and remember the days of our youth.

When my children were young, like the little boy in this painting, I loved to watch their fascination with the simplest things in life. Things that, as an adult, I often took for granted. Sometimes it’s nice to slow down and enjoy simple pleasures like this again.

Artist Comments

Sometimes I like to give myself a challenge when choosing a subject matter for my paintings. I found these fishing boat fenders tied to the pillar of a fishing pier very interesting because of all the different textures (wood pier, rusty chains, and rubbery boat fenders) present. I thought they would make an interesting challenge trying to paint all that texture. One does get a sense of texture from the detail in this artwork.

Other paintings that were a study of texture are:

For more information on the subject of texture and how it is used in art, see the art lesson: Basic Art Element — Texture

What are boat fenders?

A boat fender is a type of bumper or cushioned buffer used to prevent a boat or other watercraft from bumping into a dock, pier, or another boat causing damage to its hull. They are often constructed of rubber, foam, or plastic, and they come in various shapes and sizes depending on their use.

Artist Comments

My husband Robert and I sailed his 36-foot sailboat up the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) from Florida to Virginia in the summer of 1999. Robert served in the military and was on his way from Naval Air Station Jacksonville to Naval Station Norfolk. We saw many interesting sites along the waterway that provided numerous opportunities to photograph for future paintings. This painting of a beached shrimp boat is based on a photograph I took during this trip.

About The ICW

The Intracoastal Waterway is a 3,000-mile network of inland rivers, channels, and canals that runs along the United States’ eastern and southeast coasts. This navigable waterway is divided into two sections: the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Some of the canals are man-made, while others are natural inlets, saltwater rivers, bays, and sounds.

The ICW runs along the east coast from Boston, MA going south along the Atlantic Seaboard and around the southern tip of Florida, then following the Gulf Coast to Brownsville, TX. The purpose of the waterway is to provide a safe and navigable water route that can be used by both lightweight commercial barges and personal pleasure craft to avoid many of the hazards of open sea travel.

Artist Comments

One summer, my husband, Robert, and I loaded up the kids and headed off for an adventure on the Outer Banks to discover the lighthouses we’d heard so much about. We were living in Virginia at the time, while Robert was serving in the military and was only two hours away from the OBX (Outer Banks). Currituck Lighthouse was our first stop and the favorite of all the lighthouses we visited that fun-filled weekend. We were excited to discover that visitors can climb its 220 steps to the top and look at the spectacular view. We’ve been back to this lighthouse several times since that first trip, and we always enjoy seeing it again. This painting of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse depicts the fun time we had on that trip.

About the Lighthouse

Currituck Beach Lighthouse is located at Whale Head Bay in Corolla, North Carolina, on the northern end of the “Outer Banks.” Its distinct unpainted natural red brick appearance contrasts with fellow lighthouses along the North Carolina coast, which are painted in striking black and white. The lighthouse was constructed in 1875 and is still being used today to light the dark stretches of the southern Atlantic coastline. Annually the lighthouse welcomes an average of 185,000 visitors.

Find out more about Currituck Beach Lighthouse.

This painting is composed on a traditional-style stretched canvas. Its sides are raw and unpainted. Before it is displayed, this painting will need to be framed to give it a finished appearance.

Artist Comments

Return to Peggy’s Cove is one of two commission paintings I did for an art collector in Mississippi. This particular art buyer saw a previous painting I had done of this beautiful cove and contacted me to do two similar paintings for her. (The other painting is titled “Peggy’s Cove Revisited” and is shown below.) This is a favorite place for my client and it held many memories for her.

About Peggy’s Cove

Peggy’s Cove is a bay on the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, and is one of the world’s most photographed fishing villages. The village was designated a Canadian National Historic Site in 1987 and is still a popular tourist destination today.

About this Peggy’s Cove Oil Painting

Title: Peggy’s Cove Revisited
Size:
20″ x 16″
Support: Traditional-Style Stretched Canvas
Description: An oil painting that features a famous cove in Nova Scotia called Peggy’s Cove. Three fishing boats are in the foreground, with a lone red rowboat behind. Various structures typical of the type found in this cove can be seen in the background. A cloudy blue sky is visible above.

Artist Comments

Peggy’s Cove Revisited is one of two commissioned oil paintings. An art collector contacted me after seeing a previous painting I had done called “Peggy’s Cove.” Although this painting is the same subject as the first one, there are some noticeable differences between the two, making Peggy’s Cove Revisited an original oil painting and not a reproduction. Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, is a favorite place that holds many memories for this art collector. She commissioned me to do two paintings for her. The second painting is titled “Return To Peggy’s Cove.”

“A while ago I came across your Web site and found your beautiful paintings. I am not an artist at all or have much knowledge about art, but some of your paintings have something that lifts them above ‘just a nice picture, something that draws, that makes you look at them again and again. I love in particular your painting of Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. It looks so pure and unspoiled, it has a dreamy atmosphere to it.” — Meike E., Chester NJ

Artist Comments

Fishing is a popular recreation and pastime for those lucky enough to find the time to fish for the “big one.” I don’t particularly like to fish myself, I find it rather boring, however, I do have several friends who enjoy this sport. But this doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy painting someone fishing. I do!

I found this particular fisherman painting an interesting subject to paint with that red boat tied up to a piling. This is one of my earlier paintings and unfortunately, I don’t have a better photograph of it. It is so much more wonderful when viewed in person.

The lighthouse offers visitors easy access and an outstanding view of the Oregon coastline and the Pacific Ocean.

Clownfish

A marine life painting of a clownfish swimming among the sea anemones.

Clownfish painting
Clownfish © Copyright 1998 – Present

SOLD: This sea life painting was sold to a private art collector in Texas.

About this Clownfish Painting

Title: Clownfish
Size:
9″ w x 12″ h
Support: Canvas panel board
Description: A painting of a Clownfish swimming among sea anemones in its natural habitat. The clownfish in this painting is bright orange with white stripes that are outlined in black. Hand-painted on quality canvas board and signed by the artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

Clownfish live in saltwater. They’re also known as Anemonefish because they frequently live among sea anemones. They are brightly colored sea creatures that can be yellow, orange, reddish, or blackish in color. Many have three white bars or patches of white, depending on the species. Clown Anemonefish prefer the warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Red Sea. They are not found in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, or the Mediterranean Sea.

My painting makes this tiny Clownfish look much larger than it really is, as they only grow to between 3 and 7 inches in length. I was visiting a pet shop with my kids one day where some of these were fish on display. I was amazed at how tiny these wondrous sea creatures are!

Some Interesting Facts About Clownfish

    • All Clownfish are born male. However, later after maturity, some will become female.
    • They typically eat algae, zooplankton, worms, and small crustaceans.
    • Clownfish live in a “symbiotic” relationship with their host anemones.
    • They are extremely aggressive fish and will defend their territory and the sea anemone where they live.
    • The Clownfish will live up to 5 years in captivity and up to 10 years in the wild.

More information and photos of Clown Fish can be found here.

Your Feedback

“Hi, I was just searching the web and wanted to look for original art, paintings, and drawings to inspire me. I love your artwork. You have a realism that really caught my eye. I like the Clown Fish. The portrait of the man on the boat is fantastic. I have a God-given talent that I need to re-discover and seeing your site and reading your ‘About Me‘ section was just what I needed. Thanks for doing what you do.”

“OUTSTANDING work! I am impressed, very nice artwork. I particularly liked the Clown Fish piece! Your site is also excellent. Thanks for visiting my site, requesting a link exchange, and any future correspondence. Keep up the great work (I know, cliché – but sincere).” — Jason S., College Station TX
