About Seagull and Beach Painting

Title: Seagull Beach
Size:
6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description:  A beach painting with a seagull sitting on top of a post in the foreground and ocean waves gently rolling into shore in the background, all against a partly cloudy sky overhead. Beautiful and soothing, this seaside artwork is a must-have for any beach lover and will be a perfect addition to your coastal-themed home or office decor. Composed by hand on quality stretched canvas and signed by American artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

The composition of this seaside painting consists of a sandy beach, gentle ocean waves, and a seagull in the foreground. The aquatic color scheme has both a soothing and calming effect on its viewer.

This oil painting measures 6″x6″. Its small size makes it perfect for tight places with limited space. (See “Small Paintings for Small Spaces” for more info.)

I hand-painted it on gallery-wrap canvas. This allowed me to paint on the sides or edges of the canvas. What this means is the canvas wraps around the support bars and is stapled at the back instead of the sides. This gives the painting a modern look and it can be hung on the wall without having to be put into a frame. Most of the paintings I do today are composed on this type of canvas.

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.

Artist Comments

Return to Peggy’s Cove is one of two commission paintings I did for an art collector in Mississippi.

(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.

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

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. This painting is hand-painted on quality stretched canvas and signed by American artist Teresa Bernard.

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.”

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

“I’m a family doctor in a small town in northern Maine. I really love all your paintings. I’m so taken with the Peggy’s Cove painting – it’s so lovely. I grew up in Newfoundland where all the houses were painted a bright color to offset the grey weather that could otherwise be depressing. The red house and the ocean remind me of home. The painting brings a smile to my face.” — Janet B., Houlton ME

The sky is cloudy and overcast.  Inside the boat, a fisherman holds a fishing rod, waiting for a fish to take his bait. The colors are vibrant and full of life in this piece, and its composition is serene and calming.  It makes an excellent gift choice for someone who enjoys fishing.

Fisherman in a Red Rowboat is a seascape painting composed on a quality canvas panel board, it will require a frame before it is displayed. Hand-painted and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

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.

Description: A depiction of a famous Oregon coast lighthouse. Hand-painted on stretched canvas and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

I find Oregon to be one of the most beautiful places in America. Having lived there for several years, “The Beaver State” has inspired numerous paintings of its scenery. Heceta Head Lighthouse is one of those paintings.

This ocean-view oil painting is of the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse, built between 1892-1893. Perched high on a bluff approximately 150 feet above the sea, it stands watch over the Oregon coast 2 miles north of the famous Sea Lion Caves. Its beam can be seen for 21 nautical miles making it the strongest light on Oregon’s coastline. Heceta Head Lighthouse is a favorite place for tourists as it is one of the most-visited lighthouses in the United States. The lighthouse offers visitors easy access and an outstanding view of the Oregon coastline and the Pacific Ocean.

I was in Oregon last summer, your pictures of the Oregon coast by the sea lions is the best I have seen of that view. Your Heceta Head Lighthouse is just beautiful. I painted the coast picture also. You are an inspiration to me.” — Patricia B., Pontiac MI

About this Oregon Coast Painting

Title: Oregon Coast South of the Sea Lion Caves
Size:
9″ w x 12″ h
Support: Canvas panel board
Description: An oil painting of the Oregon coast looking south from the Sea Lion Caves. The waves have many different shades of blue and white caps. The painting has a very calming effect on the viewer.

This painting is composed on a quality canvas panel and does require a frame before it is displayed. Hand-painted and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

This ocean wave painting is one of my early pieces. It was painted when I was just getting started as a professional artist. The composition depicts the Oregon Coast as seen from the “Sea Lion Caves” looking south towards Cox Rock, one of the thousands of islands off the coast of Oregon.

The Sea Lion Caves are America’s largest sea caves and are located about halfway along Oregon’s 400 miles of coastline. It is accessible via the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway U.S. Highway 101. Visit the Sea Lion Caves website for more information.

There isn’t much information available about Cox Rock. I discovered that it is an island off the coast of Oregon that is difficult to find if you want to explore it. Visitors to the island will most likely want to use their GPS to get there.
