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.

Night Sky Over Delicate Arch

Arches National Park painting
© Copyright 2017 – Present

Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery wrap stretched canvas
Description:  An original miniature oil painting of the Delicate Arch formation inside Arches National Park, Utah. Its nighttime setting features the vastness of outer space, which has been used as a backdrop for the arch. (See Artist Comments below.) It does not need to be framed because this artwork is composed on gallery wrap canvas which allows the artist to paint around the edges of the painting.

SOLD: This painting has been sold to a private art collector in Minnesota.

Customer Feedback

Hi Teresa, I received the painting today. I love it. It’s beautiful. My husband and I have a couple of other paintings by you. We love your work. — N. Schiller, Apple Valley, MN

Artist Comments

Delicate Arch is depicted against a night sky in this painting. It is a natural geological formation inside Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. The arch stands 65 feet tall and spans 45 feet wide, and is the park’s largest free-standing arch. It is the most visited of all the 2000 geological formations within the park and receives visitors worldwide. The arch has gone by many names over the years, including “Cowboy’s Chaps,” “Schoolmarms Bloomer’s,” and “Old Maid’s Bloomers,” as well as the more mundane “Salt Wash Arch.” In 1934, the arch was given the name “Delicate.”

Delicate Arch was formed by gradually wearing away of the sandstone by weathering and erosion. The other arches in the park were formed in the same manner. It is the most famous of all the arches in the national park and has become a symbolic icon for Utah.

You can find more information about the arch by visiting this website.

Anyone who has visited this national park would probably agree it looks like the terrain of some faraway planet. I had the opportunity to visit this marvelous park in my younger days, and it was a fascinating place that I want to visit again someday.

Artist Comments

In 2015 my husband Robert and I traveled to Amarillo, TX, on vacation. While there, we visited the Palo Duro Canyon State Park several times, as it quickly became the highlight of our trip. The Lighthouse is one of many “must-see” attractions when visiting this park. Multiple visits to the canyon also provided me with many photo ops that will be used as reference material for this Palo Duro Canyon painting and future paintings of this park.

Fun Facts About Palo Duro Canyon State Park

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is located in the Texas Panhandle near Amarillo, TX. Nicknamed “The Grand Canyon of Texas” because of its size and resemblance to the Grand Canyon located in Arizona. It is the second-largest canyon in the U.S., measuring 120 miles long, 20 miles at its widest point, and 800 feet at its maximum depth. It also has over 29,000 scenic acres for the tourist or vacationer to enjoy. Like the Grand Canyon in Arizona, the Palo Duro Canyon features dramatic geological features, multicolored rock layers, and steep mesa walls.

For the park visitor, there are hiking trails, campgrounds, horseback riding, and more! The canyon is also host to TEXAS Outdoor Musical, the longest-running musical ever performed on stage. This world-renown musical drama has been performed on an outdoor stage in the canyon since 1965.

For more information about this Texas state park, visit their website.

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.

The Garden Tomb

Gethsemane Israel garden tomb painting
© Copyright 2004 – Present

Size: 9″ x 12″
Support: Stretched canvas
Description: An oil painting of a famous Israeli garden visited by many every year. It depicts the Garden Tomb at Gethsemane.

NOT FOR SALE: This painting is part of Teresa’s private art collection and is not for sale.

Artist Comments

This painting of a rock-cut tomb situated in the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem and is one of my personal favorites. Many Christians believe this famous Israeli location to be the burial and resurrection place of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion at Golgotha, the place of the skull. Being a devout Christian, this particular painting has a lot of personal meaning for me. It is one of two I’ve painted of this famous travel place. The other painting is called The Garden Tomb at Sunset.

The Burial and Resurrection of Jesus the Christ

“As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.” Matthew 27:57-60

“He is not here: for He is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:6

“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

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.

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
