Artist Comments

I painted the Devils Tower in an oil painting after returning home from a trip with my husband to South Dakota in 2016.  During this trip, we visited Devils Tower National Monument. The monument is a unique geological rock tower that rises above the grassy plains of northeast Wyoming. At the time, we were vacationing in Rapid City, South Dakota. Since the tower was within driving distance of our hotel, we could not pass up the opportunity to visit this “one-of-a-kind natural wonder.”

We could see Devils Tower from miles away as we made our approach to the national monument. Upon arriving at our destination, we drove through the 2.1 square mile park which surrounded the monument. We couldn’t help but notice the tower as it was the centerpiece of the park. It looked like a giant granite tree stump with a flat summit and fluted sides.

Devils Tower stands more than 867 feet from its base to the summit. It measures approximately 180 feet by 300 feet at the top and is about a mile in circumference at the base. There is a 1.25-mile hiking trail around the tower base that provided us with spectacular close-up views from all sides. There was another much wider 3-mile trail that also loops around the tower, but we didn’t take that one. We spent a better part of the day exploring and learning everything about the tower before heading back to the hotel. All-in-all it was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Why “Devils Tower” and Not “Devil’s Tower”?

In 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt declared Devils Tower America’s first official national monument. The monument was initially named “Devil’s Tower” with an apostrophe; however, somewhere along the way, the apostrophe got dropped because of a clerical error and was never corrected. To this day, it is still called Devils Tower with no apostrophe.

Scaling Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro commission painting
© Copyright 2011 – Present

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 and signed by Teresa Bernard.

SOLD: An art collector in New Jersey commissioned this painting.

Customer Feedback

I wanted you to know that I received the painting and presented it to Jim and he loved it! Thank you so much for all of your time and effort. It was well worth the wait! — A. Boutillier, Morristown NJ

Artist Comments

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 Mount Everest. However, it needs to be pointed out that Everest is attempted by significantly fewer climbers than Kilimanjaro.

Artist Comments

The Gothic church in this painting was initially painted and made famous by Vincent van Gogh in June 1890. Van Gogh’s church depicted in this painting is in Auvers, France, where he lived before his death. I wanted to do a rendition of my own of this lovely church, and the results of that desire are what you see here. You can find out more about Van Gogh’s rendition of this church on Wikipedia: The Church at Auvers.

Although our styles are vastly different, Van Gogh is still one of my favorite Old Masters. From his sunflowers to that lovely church in the village where he lived, I love much of Van Gogh’s work. He composed many of his paintings using bold, dramatic colors emphasized by impulsive and expressive brushwork. He painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and self-portraits.

According to Wikipedia, Van Gogh is one of the “most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.” In his lifetime, he painted around 860 oil paintings. Van Gogh painted many of his paintings during the last two years of his life. He died at age 37 from a self-inflicted wound. You can read more about Van Gogh here.

Artist Comments

This painting is the second in a series of Holy Land paintings featuring the Garden Tomb. The famous tomb is in the Garden of Gethsemane near Jerusalem. Christians worldwide consider this place to be the actual burial and resurrection site of Jesus and not the renowned Church of The Holy Sepulcher. His crucifixion occurred at Golgotha, the “place of the skull,” 

The reason many believe this to be the site of the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is that it so clearly fits the description described in each of the Gospel accounts.

Site of the Crucifixion

    • Skull Rock outside the city walls of Jerusalem
    • Near a gate of the city
    • Along a busy thoroughfare
    • At a place of public execution
    • At the place of the skull – Golgotha
    • A garden nearby

Evidence regarding the site of the tomb is in Matthew 27:57-60.

    • Skull Rock located in a garden
    • Belonged to a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea
    • Cut out of the rock
    • Sealed with a rolling stone
    • Entered through a low doorway
    • Burial chamber situated to the right of the entrance

Artist Comments

The Sea of Galilee is a large freshwater lake located in northeast Israel, between the Golan Heights and the Galilee region. The Jordan River is its primary source of water. The lake is approximately 13 miles long and 8 miles wide.

This painting of the famous Sea of Galilee was inspired by my love of God’s word and readings about Jesus in the Bible. I love Israel because God’s chosen people live there. I have never visited Israel; however, I would love to go there someday. This painting was composed using a reference photo from the “Pictorial Library of Bible Lands.” The photographer, Todd Bolen, graciously permitted me to use his photographs for any of my Bible land paintings.

According to Matthew 4:13-22, this historic biblical location is where Jesus began His ministry and called His first disciples. This passage tells us Jesus left Nazareth and went to Capernaum. While walking along the Sea of Galilee, He called the first four of His disciples Simon called Peter, Andrew, James, and John.

Other scripture references about Capernaum: Matthew 8:5, 11:23, 17:24; Mark 1:21, 2:1, 9:33; Luke 4:23, 4:31, 7:1, 10:15; John 2:12, 4:46, 6:17, 6:24, 6:59. You can easily look up these scriptures here.

“I love it, and looked at the site. The “Sea of Galilee at Capernaum” put me in mind of something by Turner or some of the Hudson River school. Wonderful stuff.” — josisenberg, SciFi & Fantasy Writers, Gab

“I really like your paintings–the portrait of your husband is very unusual in composition and the backlighting–wish I could see it in real life. Another that really caught my eye especially is the Sea of Galilee at Capernaum–the light in the sky is particularly indicative of something spiritual, even if one didn’t know a thing about the religious significance of the place.” — Elena M., Columbia, MD

Return to Peggy’s Cove is the second of two commissions I did for an art collector. This particular art collector saw a previous painting I had done called “Peggy’s Cove” and contracted me to do two more paintings of the same subject for her.

Peggy’s Cove is a bay located in Nova Scotia. It is also a favorite place that holds many memories for her. The other painting I did for her is titled “Peggy’s Cove Revisited.”

“A while ago I came across your Web site and found your beautiful paintings.

Artist Comments

Monument Valley, Utah, also known as “Valley of the Rocks,” is considered one of the world’s natural wonders and is perhaps the most enduring and definitive image of the iconic American Old West. This valley has long been a favorite location for filming Western movies. The isolated red mesas, striking spires, and sandstone buttes surrounded by an empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years.

Called Tsé Bii’ Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks) by the Navajo, this famous valley lies in the southern part of Utah near the Arizona border within the Navajo Nation Reservation. When you first approach the area, these rock “monuments” will take your breath away. The eerie rock formations make you feel like you’ve been transported to another planet. It is truly one of the most majestic places on earth.

The first time I visited Monument Valley National Park, I knew right away I’d be doing a painting of this beautiful valley. In fact, I’ve painted this place several times. I also have memories of several paintings I did of this place when I was a youngster studying under my dad, a professional oil painting artist. My dad loved painting this location too and painted several oil paintings of it himself. None of those early paintings are around anymore. I’m not sure what became of them—my dads’ paintings sold to art collectors and local businesses in the small community where we lived.

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 Currituck Beach 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.
