Artist Comments

I’m a huge supporter of the United States Space Program, both the military and civilian branches, and this painting is a tribute to them. I love traveling to new places, and for me, outer space would be the ultimate adventure in this physical universe.

About the U.S. Space Shuttle

The Space Shuttle is a retired spacecraft system operated by NASA from 1981 to 2011 as part of the United States Space Shuttle program. It was intended to be a partially reusable spacecraft that would be launched like a rocket and landed on a runway like a glider. The space shuttle launched astronauts and cargo into space and returned them safely.

Six space shuttles have been built for the United States Space Program since its inception. The first space shuttle, Enterprise, was a prototype that was carried on its maiden voyage by a Boeing 747, but it never made it into space. Challenger, Columbia, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour were the other five space shuttles. All five went on space missions.

About The Beautiful Infinite Painting

Title: The Beautiful Infinite
Size:
12″ w x 12″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A painting of a starry night with a silhouette of a man holding a balloon drifting away into the infinite beauty of the night sky and outer space. Hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard. This painting is ready for display as is, or if you like, it can be framed to give it more of a finished look.

Artist Comments

The Beautiful Infinite is a commissioned painting that I did for the band members of MindSlicer, an alternative music group. They contacted me because they liked my artistic style and especially my space art paintings. The band wanted to know if I would be willing to create a painting for them to use as the cover for their upcoming album.

My Assignment

Compose a painting that emphasizes the infinity of space with thousands of visible stars and galaxies. It needed to be colorful and vibrant to balance the colder night sky with equal parts of warmth.

In addition, the composition needed to include the silhouette of a person standing on the bank of a river or the edge of a precipice. This person holds a balloon and is partially floating up into the air as if the balloon were trying to carry him off into the starry night sky.

Art Commissions

Teresa does commission paintings. If you have a special painting in mind and you want to make it a reality just like the band members of Mindslicer did, contact us for more information.

About this Starry Night Painting

painting of starry night with loan scraggly tree

Title: Starry Night with Lone Scraggly Tree
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A painting featuring the silhouette of a lone scraggly tree against the Milky Way and starry night background. In the distance is a line of trees on the horizon which are also in silhouette against a bright yellow and orange sunset. The painting is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.

This small 6×6 inch painting is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. Its small size makes it perfect for small spaces or areas where space is limited. Because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas, it does not need to be framed before being displayed. However, if you prefer to have it framed, Starry Night will look great in your home, office, or anywhere it is displayed.

Artist Comments

I painted Starry Night with Lone Scraggly Tree because I wanted to do a night sky painting with the Milky Way. I have done a number of space paintings, but only a few of them depict space closer to home, Earth. There is so much out in the vastness of space to paint, galaxies, nebulas, suns, planets, gasses, stars, etc. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of subject matter to paint in the night sky or outer space.

Starry Night… reminds me of Psalm 19:1 which tells us “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.”

As I view Starry Night…, a Christian worship song I often hear on the radio comes to mind. You can listen to it here “God of Wonders Beyond Our Galaxy” by Chris Tomlin. I have the lyrics below so you can follow along with the song.
