Artist Comments

I love all flowers, however, one of my favorites the sunflower. I love the bright sunshine yellow petals and huge blossoms that resemble the sun. Most paintings of sunflowers are composed from the front of the blossom, however, the back side of some flowers can be just as interesting and the sunflower is a good example of one.

Some Interesting Things About Sunflowers

    • The sunflower is a plant that is native to North America. Later it was introduced to Mexico and Peru. They can grow up to 6 feet tall and prefer dry, sunny places where their roots can dig deep into the soil.
    • When the plant is in the bud stage, it will face the sun following its movement across the sky from horizon to horizon. This movement allows it to get the maximum amount of the sun’s rays. Once the flower is fully opened into the radiance of yellow petals, it faces east only. It is not known why it does this. One theory is it is possibly a defensive response to prevent the sun from scalding the seed pod during hot summer days.
    • The sunflower is often equated as a symbol of spiritual faith, worship, adoration, loyalty and longevity. Perhaps because it is always seeking the “Light”.

Artist Comments

This is a painting of a large white dog, possibly a Great Pyrenees. The Great Pyrenees has been one of my favorite breed of dog ever since Lobo, our Pyrenees-mix, showed up at our door one day and decided to stay. Living out in the country as we do, means we get a lot of strays who wonder up to our door looking for a place to call home. We don’t know where they come from, but we never turn them away. We try to reunite them with  their owner, if possible. If not, then we find them a new home or wind up adopting them ourselves. This artwork isn’t specifically of Lobo, but the dog portrayed in it sure does remind me of him.

A Few Fun Facts About Great Pyrenees

Great Pyrenees makes great family pets with their calm, devoted and well-mannered disposition. They are very devoted to those they love and will protect family with their very life if need be. In addition, they make great guard dogs, especially around livestock.

The Great Pyrenees is a dog of great intellect with a mind of their own, love to figure things out by themselves and are good at problem solving. While this is a wonderful trait, it can create a bit of a challenge when it comes to training.

My Oil Paintings Index

UPDATED: 29 December 2020

Artist Teresa Bernard Below is a list of all my oil paintings on this website. If you don’t find the painting you are searching for here, then chances are it isn’t one of mine. Of course this list isn’t exhaustive. I’ve been painting since my preteens and that was before the Internet arrived on the scene and I built this website. Unfortunately I don’t have any photographs of those early paintings, only my memories. So there are some paintings by me out in the world that will only be enjoyed by those who possess them.

Bible Lands Collection

The oil paintings in this series are of ancient Bible places and also modern day Israel. I’ve always wanted to travel and visit these places, to walk the streets of the cities I read about in the Bible and explore the culture of the peoples who live there. Maybe someday.

For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you. — Deuteronomy 8:7-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Artist Comments

This painting is of a vintage Ford V8. The same type car that helped make “Bonnie and Clyde” famous in the early 1930’s. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were notorious fugitives who traveled throughout the central states of North America with their gang during the Great Depression robbing and murdering wherever they went. The couple’s crime spree ended in their car when they were ambushed by Texas lawmen at a roadblock and then shot to death when 100 armor piercing bullets riddled the car. Bonnie and Clyde were buried in separate cemeteries in Dallas. Clyde’s gravestone reads “Gone but not forgotten.”

Today the actual bullet-riddled death car driven by the infamous couple is now on display at Whiskey Pete’s Resort and Casino in Primm, Nevada. There is no admission charge to see the exhibit. For more information about the actual car Bonnie and Clyde met their demise in, visit Roads & Rides. Additional information can be found at Roadside America.

This painting made a “sneak peek” preview appearance on my Facebook page before it was added to my website. A fan who follows my oil paintings named this work of art “Forgotten Roads”.

Artist Comments

love all flowers, especially roses. This close-up oil painting of a rose was done shortly after we moved back home to Texas when my husband Robert retired from the military after 24 years of serving in the U.S. Navy. There is an old folk song that kept coming to mind called “Yellow Rose of Texas”, so I knew I just had to do an oil painting of a yellow rose. I decided to do a close-up composition because of a fellow artist who’s paintings I admire.

Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe flower paintings, I wanted to use the same treatment as she when I painted my own series of flowers. Ms. O’Keeffe like to paint her flowers enlarged by zooming in and really focusing on the flower blossom or petals in many of her paintings. I really admire much of her floral art and accomplishments as an American female artist.

To my knowledge, O’Keeffe never did paintings of roses. Instead her favorite flower to paint seems to have been the Jimson Weed since she painted quite a few of those flowers during her lifetime. I’ve painted several roses, a sunflower and a magnolia blossom using this enlarged flower technique. I’m positive there will be more flower paintings like this one in the future.

For more information on Georgia O’Keeffe and her flower paintings.

Artist Comments

This painting was a fun one to do. At first it appears to be a bit surreal which is not the genre of art that I normally do. I’m a realist painter. This painting is actually a landscape and was painted from an actual photograph of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa. It depicts camelthorn trees with a sand dune rising in the background. The sand dune is bathed in orange by the effects of a rising sun. The trees are in shadow from another nearby dune. Some believe these trees have been dead for hundreds of years and that their failure to decompose is because the desert is so arid.

Artist Comments

This painting is a religious themed landscape painting portraying the cross in silhouette against a colorful evening sky. It is not to be taken as the literal representation of the crucifixion of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rather it depicts that moment in time just after the disciples took His lifeless body down from the cross.

The Holy Bible tells us about this momentous historical event throughout its pages. From Scripture we learn that Jesus Christ endured the crucifixion from approximately 9 A.M until 3 P.M. and that His dead body was removed from the cross just before sundown. Whereas, the four New Testament Gospels describe some kind of supernatural phenomena which occurred at the moment of His death.

From the four Gospels we learn…

    • The Gospel of Matthew account mentions an earthquake,  the opening of the saints tombs in the vicinity and the resurrected saints making an appearance in Jerusalem.
    • The Gospel of Mark reveals how darkness spread throughout the land and the temple veil being ripped in two.
    • The Gospel of Luke tells us Jesus was crucified with criminals and that the Roman soldiers mocked Him and cast lots for His clothing.
    • The Gospel of John describes how the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and that Jesus was crucified at Golgotha which means the place of the Skull.

Calvary At Sunset is part of a series of oil paintings called the Christian Art Series.
