This is a realistic still life painting of red and yellow onions. I wanted to try something different than the previous still lifes I’d done. The shapes, colors, and placement of the onions piqued my interest as well. This art piece will look great in a formal dining room, café, or restaurant.

About this Vintage Sewing Thread  Painting

Companion paintings are sold separately.

Title: Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Shape: Square
Description:  A still life painting featuring four vintage sewing spools made of wood. Each spool contains sewing thread of a different color: red, orange, green, and blue. A sewing needle is stuck through the green spool. The background is painted in a neutral gray color to match its companion painting. The painting is one of two in a series and is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.

This small 6×6 inch painting is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. Its small size makes it ideal for small spaces or areas with limited space. Because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas, it does not need to be framed before being displayed. However, if you prefer to have it mounted in a frame, Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread will look great in your home or office, or any place it is put on display.

Artist Comments

This painting is part of the Great-Grandma’s Vintage Sewing Thread series. I call it “great-grandma’s” because we live in the modern era, and thread is no longer sold on wooden spools. Sewing thread spun on wooden spools was probably used by our great-grandmothers, but not so much nowadays.
Sewing thread is now sold on plastic spools.

Manufacturers are no longer making wooden thread spools, but that doesn’t mean they have no value. They are still useful in some ways. One advantage of these vintage thread spools is that they last a long time and can be reused in numerous other ways after the thread runs out.

I recall playing with empty wooden spools as a child. I strung them on a string and used them to make necklaces. When I played with my Barbie dolls, I also used them for doll furniture, among other things.

Vintage wooden spools are useful for a variety of arts and crafts projects. Using your imagination, you could transform them into beautiful artwork or something else that would give them new life. Use them yourself or for a project, your children could enjoy. Better yet, use them in a project that you and your children could enjoy doing together.

Companion Painting

“Great-Sewing Grandma’s Thread #1” is a companion painting to Sewing Thread #2. Companion paintings are available for purchase separately. Whether purchased separately or together, either of these paintings will look fantastic proudly displayed in a sewing or craft room.

About this Antique Sewing Thread Painting

Title: Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #1
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Shape: Square
Description: A still life painting of two antique wooden spools with sewing thread. The spools are filled with different colors of thread, one red and one blue. A sewing needle is stuck through the blue spool of thread. The background is painted in the same light gray as its companion painting. This is one of two paintings in a series and is signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

This is a small painting measuring 6×6 inches. Its compact size makes it perfect for small or limited spaces. It is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas and won’t need a frame because the painting’s image extends around the edges of the canvas support giving it a contemporary look. Whether you choose to have it framed or leave it unframed, it will look great in your home or office, or any place it is displayed.

Artist Comments

This painting is part of the Great-Grandma’s Antique Sewing Thread series. I call it “great-grandma’s” because we are now living in a modern age, and thread no longer comes on wooden spools. Our great-grandmothers would have probably used sewing thread spun on wooden spools.

Today’s wooden spools are over 50 years old and are considered antiques. Sewing thread is now sold on plastic spools, and most likely our grandmothers, and most assuredly, our mothers would have sewn their projects with thread spun on plastic spools.

I remember playing with empty wooden spools when I was a young child in the 60-70s. As I grew older, my grandmother began teaching me how to sew doll clothes and other items. However, I barely remember thread coming on anything but plastic spools. I remember raiding my grandmother’s sewing box for just the right color of thread I needed, and I remember finding some wooden spools there.

Unfortunately, wooden spools met their demise back in the 1970s when manufacturers stopped using them to spin thread on. It was purely a business decision. It was more cost-effective for them to use plastic spools instead. If you happen to come across a vintage sewing spool, don’t throw it away; hang on to it. Wooden spools are antiques and do have some value. Just how much it is worth depends on how old the spool is and its condition.

Companion Painting

“Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2” is a companion painting to Sewing Thread #1. Companion paintings can be purchased separately. Both of these paintings would look great in a sewing or craft room, whether purchased separately or together.

About this Fine China Teacup Painting

Title: Great-Grandma’s Fine China Teacup
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Shape: Square
Description:  A small still life painting of a fine china teacup and saucer, the kind that grandma or great-grandma might have used to sip their tea or coffee. The teacup and saucer are decorated in burgundy and gold. A burgundy silk flower is also sitting in the saucer next to the teacup. The background is dark, and the tabletop is gold. This delicate and colorful teacup painting would be ideal for adding a touch of class to a small kitchen, dining area, or living room. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard.

Because of its small size, this painting is ideal for small rooms or areas with limited space. It is 6×6 inches in size and was hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. The composition of Great-Grandma’s Teacup spreads out around the edges of the canvas, giving it a fashionable appearance. This painting, whether framed or unframed, will look great in your home, office, or anywhere it is displayed.

Artist Comments

I named this painting Great-Grandma’s Fine China Teacup because, in this day and age of Starbucks, paper cups, and travel mugs, the art of drinking coffee or hot tea from fine china is quickly becoming a thing of the past for a great many Americans. Well, at least that is my perspective.

Here is a case in point. I read once about a young bride-to-be preparing for her upcoming wedding and how her mother coerced her into adding a set of fine china to her bridal registry. The young woman felt it would be ludicrous to do so as the china set would never get used except for holidays and perhaps rarely even then.

For many Americans, I suppose there is no longer a need for the loving memories that come from pulling out the fine china and using it for special occasions as our great-grandmothers did; or is there? And I guess it’s been forgotten that hot beverages taste much better when served in a fine china cup. Not to mention that teacups are pretty and dainty, which helps to make a special occasion that much more special.

So, what are you waiting for? Bring out your great-grandma’s (or grandma’s) fine china and put it to use today. You’re not getting any younger.

Artist Comments

“Still Life” is an art term that refers to a specific type of painting. Its subject matter is typically composed of inanimate or “still” objects that are either organic such as food or flowers, or man-made like books, candles, bottles, etc. Furthermore, the composition is usually created to serve the artist’s purpose.

The allure of still life paintings is that they can provide us with a new perspective on everyday objects. Some artists, such as Salvador Dali and Jackson Pollock, take a surreal or abstract approach to their paintings. I’m a realist artist who prefers to paint my work as it really appears.

I also paint on commission for art collectors and enthusiasts from the United States and internationally. Please see “How to Commission a Painting” for more information if you have a specific still life painting in mind that you’d like me to paint for you.

Artist Comments

The Study is the first painting I’ve done using a limited color palette. What this means is that I deliberately chose to restrict the number of paint colors I used when doing this painting. The sepias I chose to use in this still life give it a vintage look.  This would be great wall décor for an office, study, den, or even a “man cave.”

Artist Comments

Still Life with Clay Pottery is a monochromatic painting that features everyday household items that would have been found in a typical kitchen in Israel or Jordan during the Iron Age (1200-586 B.C.). While visiting the “Holy Land Photos” website, I found some interesting photos of a reconstructed Israelite House on display at the Haaretz Museum in north Tel Aviv. This painting is from one of those photos.

Artist Comments

Artists will often use reference photos to compose their paintings. Sometimes they will create their composition from only one photo, and other times several photos are used. There’s nothing wrong with painting from photographs; artists do it all the time.

Still Life with Coral and Lantern combines several such reference photographs that depicted the nautical elements I wanted to portray in my artwork. One of those elements was coral. Coral can be in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Although, pinks and reds are the most common colors. They are tiny sea creatures that live in the ocean in large colonies that look like plants. They will live all of their adult lives in one place and prefer the places where the water is warmer. When they die, their skeletons form a hard stony substance, also called coral. Large deposits of coral often accumulate to form reefs or islands.

I had never used coral in a painting before, so as I considered painting a still life with a nautical theme, I felt it would be interesting to include some coral in this one. I’m happy with how it turned out, and I especially like the nautical lantern to finish out this marine-themed still life.
