Economy Oil Paintings

economy oil paintingsAnnouncing an Economy Line of Oil Paintings by Teresa Bernard

ATTENTION art lovers and collectors on a budget! We are pleased to announce a new line of fine art by Teresa Bernard. Created for budget-conscious art enthusiasts, we call these artworks Economy Oil Paintings.

Economy paintings are a great way to adorn the walls of your home or workspace with one-of-a-kind works of art without breaking the bank.

All economy oil paintings are a standard size measuring 9×12 inches. This allows Teresa to buy quality canvas in bulk which helps to keep costs down. The canvas she uses is made of heavy-duty canvas panel boards and is constructed of primed canvas over a rigid, lightweight board. This makes them lighter, less fragile, and more affordable without sacrificing any quality.

Economic paintings are smaller in size, which means Teresa can finish a painting in much less time. It only takes her a few hours to complete an economy painting from start to finish, whereas much larger paintings can take up to several days to complete. This means more significant savings for you!

Be sure to bookmark this webpage so you can come back here often as more paintings will be added to this line on a regular basis.

Quality of Artwork

Teresa never sacrifices the quality of her art or the materials used to create these more economical artworks. She applies the same extreme care and concern for details, artistic expression, and skill to her economy line of oil paintings as she does to her compositions painted on larger higher priced stretched canvas.

Now anyone can own one or more of Teresa’s hand-painted oil paintings. In addition, every economy painting comes with a custom Certificate of Authenticity, as well as FREE shipping and handling inside the U.S.A.

Artist Comments

I love all flowers; however, the sunflower is one of my favorites. I love the bright sunshine-yellow petals and huge blossoms that resemble the sun. Most sunflower paintings are composed of the front of the blossom. However, the backsides of some flowers are just as beautiful, and the sunflower is certainly 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. After the flower has fully opened into the radiance of yellow petals, it will face only east. No one knows 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 always seeks the “Light.”

Artist Comments

This painting is of a large white dog, possibly a Great Pyrenees. The Great Pyrenees has become one of my favorite dog breeds 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 many strays who wander 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.

Read more about how I painted this painting here.

A Few Fun Facts About Great Pyrenees

The Great Pyrenees makes excellent family pets with their calm, devoted, and well-mannered disposition. They are very loyal to those they love and protect the family with their lives if need be. In addition, they make excellent 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.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of those early works, only my memories. As a result, there are some of my paintings out there that will only be appreciated by people who own them.

The Importance of Varnishing Oil Paintings

varnishing oil paintings
Marine Still Life with Boat Fenders by Teresa Bernard

Now that you have acquired that beautiful oil painting, you will want to take measures to ensure that it stays that way. One important thing to do is make sure it has received several coats of artist-grade non-yellowing varnish. Varnishing oil paintings is something every artist should do before their artworks leave the studio.

Varnish is a final, transparent protective layer applied to a painting after it is finished and completely dry. It is an important first step in preserving the work of art, so it lasts for generations to come.

Why varnish an oil painting?

1. Varnish saturates the colors, making them pop. It brings out the vibrancy of the colors and gives them that just painted look and shine. In addition, varnish helps to keep those beautiful colors from fading as the years go by.

2. Varnish creates an even sheen over the entire surface of the painting. Oil paint colors dry very differently because of the different pigments that make up each color. When completely dry, some colors appear matte, some satin, and some glossy. A layer or two of varnish will even out the final appearance of the painting, giving it a consistent overall look.

3. Varnish protects the painted surface from atmospheric elements and makes the surface easier to clean. All paintings will require cleaning as time goes by; however, the varnish will reduce the frequency of those cleanings and reduce the risk of any possible damage to the painting. If the painting isn’t varnished, over time, dust, grime, dirt, grease, moisture, and pollution in the environment will change the look of the painting. These can dull the colors, causing them to crack and chip off as the years go by.

When should a painting be varnished?

An oil painting should be allowed to dry for a minimum of 6 months before applying varnish. Depending on how thick the paint is applied, it might even need as much as 12 months of drying time. It’s crucial that the oil painting is thoroughly dry before the varnish is applied; otherwise, the varnish may crack. This is because varnish dries before the oil paint does. As oil paint dries, it moves slightly, and since the varnish is already dry, it begins to crack.

If your painting has never been varnished, you will need to wait at least a year and then take it to a reputable frame shop. They may be able to varnish the painting; however, it will probably be for a fee. Or, if you know of an artist in your area who is an oil painter, they may varnish the painting for you as well.

One final solution is varnishing oil paintings yourself. However, I wouldn’t recommend this if your painting is a valuable piece of art. If you do varnish the painting yourself, be sure to use varnish designed for fine art oil paintings. And make sure to follow all instructions on the label. It is not recommended that you use varnish obtained from a hardware store as this kind is too harsh for the painting and could wind up damaging it.

If you have a question about this painting, please contact us, and we’ll be happy to answer any of your questions.

The Flower Paintings of Vincent van Gogh

The Flower Paintings of Vincent van Gogh
Self Portrait by Vincent van Gogh, 1889

Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch-born impressionist and post-impressionist artist. In his lifetime Van Gogh painted a lot of paintings. Among these were still lifes depicting flowers. Van Gogh loved nature, and flowers offered him the opportunity to portray nature at its best. He often used ordinary flowers that grew in the countryside near his home as subject matter for many of his flower oil paintings.

Some of this floral art is considered among his most famous masterpieces. For example, his sunflower series is perhaps the most famous of all his works. The flowers he chose to paint were put into floral arrangements standing in vases and flowers laying down on the ground. He also loved to paint flowers in their natural habitat, the countryside, and gardens. From van Gogh’s depiction of sunflowers, irises, roses, poppies, cornflowers, myositis, and chrysanthemums, he brought life and emotion to his work, putting his unique perspective on it.

Today Van Gogh is loved for his passion which is indicative of his work. His sunflower painting is one of the most loved of his flower oil paintings. Other favorite flower paintings by van Gogh are of irises.

Flower Paintings by Vincent van Gogh

Some of his most loved flower paintings of Vincent van Gogh include:

sun flower paintings by van GoghSunflowers, 1888, oil on canvas
One in a series of sunflower oil paintings by Vincent van Gogh. The series show sunflowers in all stages of life, from full bloom to withering. The paintings were considered innovative for their use of the yellow spectrum, partly because newly invented pigments made new colors possible.

This is one of many paintings of irises. Irises were painted while Van Gogh was living at the asylum at Saint Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. Each one of Van Gogh’s irises is unique. He carefully studied their movements and shapes to create various curved silhouettes bounded by wavy, twisting, and curling lines. The cropped composition, divided into broad areas of vivid color with monumental irises overflowing its borders, was probably influenced by the decorative patterning of Japanese woodblock prints.

van gogh almond blossom paintingAlmond Blossom, 1890, oil on canvas
This painting of delicate almond blossom against a clear blue sky is from a group of several paintings of blossoming almond trees. Van Gogh painted this to celebrate the birth of his nephew and namesake, son of his brother Theo and sister-in-law Jo. He chose the branches of an almond tree – a variety that blossoms as early as February in the south of France, where it announces the coming spring. The subject, the bold outlines, and the positioning of the tree in the picture plane are borrowed from Japanese printmaking.

still life with red poppies and daisiesStill Life: Red Poppies and Daisies, 1889, oil on canvas
Between the years 1886 and 1890, Vincent van Gogh completed seven different paintings featuring poppy flowers. Van Gogh did not have money to pay models, so still-life painting became more practical.

vase with pink roses van goghStill Life: Vase with Pink Roses, 1890, oil on canvas
Van Gogh painted this particular painting shortly before his release from the Saint-Rémy asylum. As the end of his stay in Saint-Rémy and the days ahead in Auvers-Sur-Oise neared, Van Gogh conveyed his optimism and enthusiasm by painting flowers. The painting reflects the optimism Van Gogh felt about his future, both in his choice of flowers as a subject and the colors used.

Artist Comments

This painting is of a vintage Ford V8, the same type of car that helped make “Bonnie and Clyde” famous in the early 1930s. 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 vehicle. Bonnie and Clyde were buried in separate cemeteries in Dallas, TX. Clyde’s gravestone reads, “Gone but not forgotten.”

Today the actual bullet-riddled death car driven by the infamous couple is 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. See additional information at Roadside America.

Peggy’s Cove Revisited

peggys cove oil painting
© Copyright 2008 – Present

Size: 20″ x 16″
Support: Stretched canvas
Description: An oil painting that features a famous cove in Nova Scotia called Peggy’s Cove.

SOLD: This oil painting is a commission order from an art collector in Mississippi.

Artist Comments

“Peggy’s Cove Revisited” is one of two commission 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.”

Other paintings by me of Peggy’s Cove are:

Your Feedback

“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
