About this Mount Kilimanjaro Painting
Size: 24″ x 18″ Support: Gallery wrap stretched canvas Description: An oil painting of a hiker scaling up Mount Kilimanjaro, a famous mountain in Africa. Hand-painted on quality stretched canvas and signed by commission artist Teresa Bernard.
Scaling Mount Kilimanjaro is a commission painting I did for a client who had been on an expedition up this famous mountain in Africa one year. My client supplied the photo from her trip for this painting. Since this was a memorable trip for my client, I kept the painting as close to the photograph as possible. My client loved the finished painting and proudly displays it in her living room, where it receives many favorable comments from her guests.
About Mount Kilimanjaro
Located in Tanzania, Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano and happens to be the highest mountain in Africa at 19,340 feet above sea level. Its three volcanic cones are named Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It isn’t certain where the name Kilimanjaro originates from, but there are several theories about that. A few possible meanings could be Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness, or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not be any of these.
This mountain is a popular attraction for hikers and mountain climbers from all over the globe. Some estimate that more people have died trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro than on Mount Everest. However, it needs to be pointed out that Everest is attempted by significantly fewer climbers than Kilimanjaro.

About this Snow Painting
Title: Fence Post in the Snow
Size: 9″ w x 12″ h Support: Canvas panel board Description: A winter landscape painting featuring snow, barbwire, and fence post on a cold, snowy day. This small snow painting is an excellent way to bring the wintery outdoors inside.
Fence Post in the Snow is a serene and nostalgic art piece. The beauty of a simple fence post in the snow is captured in this painting. The snow is perfect, and the fence post is sturdy and tall.
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.
This painting is one of my earlier works. Its wintery landscape setting is one of my favorite snow paintings. I enjoyed painting this fence post with all its knots, texture, and that hole. Painting those shadows in the snow turned out to be quite interesting too. I almost skipped the barbed wire because I thought it would be difficult to paint. I’m glad I didn’t leave it out because I’m pleased with how it turned out.

About this Sequoia Trees Painting
Titled: The Giants of Sequoia National Park
Size: 12″ w x 16″ h Support: Traditional-Style Stretched canvas Description: A winter landscape painting of the giant Sequoia trees in California’s Sequoia National Park. A road winds through these massive trees, which are blanketed in snow. The painting is done in a traditional style, with precise brushstrokes and realistic colors.
This artwork is hand-painted and signed by artist Teresa Bernard.
This is one of my early paintings, and I regret not having a better photograph of it. I was inspired to paint this painting by the massive Sequoia trees in this central California national park. Few tree species elicit as much awe as the Sequoia. Its enormous size gives them an otherworldly appearance. I’ve seen and walked among them; they truly are magnificent!
By volume, the Sequoia is the world’s largest tree. Its massive trunk can reach circumferences of more than 100 feet. The Sequoia can grow to be anywhere between 60 and 275 feet tall. It’s also worth noting that they have been designated as endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
