Artist Comments

This painting of a young girl in a red dress was fun because I used a model of someone I knew, sort of. She is the granddaughter of a friend I attended high school with. My friend permitted me to use the photo she had taken of her granddaughter as a reference for this painting.

For the most part, the painting appears just as it does in the reference photo except for the lily pads,  koi fish, and cattails. I added those elements to make the composition more interesting and to help further develop the story this painting portrays.

Artist Comments

I have done a few portraits in my art career, but I do not consider myself a portrait artist. Instead, I like to paint people doing something or observing their surroundings in natural settings. These types of paintings tell a story.

The faces in my people paintings are all turned away from the viewer because they are not meant to be portraits of a recognizable person. They are whomever the viewer wants them to be.

I also work on commission and have painted for fellow art collectors and enthusiasts all over the world. If you have a specific painting in mind that you’d like me to paint for you, click here for more information on “How to Commission a Painting.”

About this Portrait Painting of Tera

Title: Portrait of Tera
Size:
16″ w x 20″ h
Support: Traditional-Style Stretched canvas
Description:  Portrait painting of Tera sitting in a library. Hand-painted on quality stretched canvas and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

This is a portrait painting of my daughter Tera. I painted it using her high school senior portrait as a reference photo. However, the background in the painting is an entirely different setting than what was used in the photo. When I did her painting, Tera was attending college and studying to become a librarian, so I chose a library setting for the background instead.

All through high school, Tera wanted to become a librarian and even worked after school and on weekends at a local branch of the public library. She loved books and reading and still does to this day. The background in her painting is of a fictional place and is not the library she was working at during high school.

This was a fun painting to do, and I took my time with it as I wanted everything to be just right. First of all, the subject matter is near and very dear to my heart. Secondly, it was both fun and challenging to paint all those books on the shelves. I captured a very good likeness of Tera with this painting; however, when I photographed it for my website, I realize my photography skills need some improvement!

Portrait of Tera is part of my private art collection and is not for sale. Someday it will be passed down to Tera as a family heirloom, but for now, it continues to hang on the wall in my living room.
