Artist Comments

I appreciate simple, uncluttered compositions, and this still life painting exemplifies that preference. My deliberate choice of simplicity allows viewers to appreciate the beauty in everyday objects which in this case are black glass jars. The lack of distractions causes us to focus on the essence of the jars.

If you like vintage, this still life painting of three rustic jugs will look great in your home or office.

A unique still life painting of three rustic jugs sitting on a wood plank floor next to a white siding wall. The vintage jugs depicted vary in shape, size, and material. One is a two-toned jug made of stoneware, which was traditionally used for moonshine. Another jug is a tin water pitcher that is a pewter color. The third jug is a small dark brown ceramic container with a wire handle. Teresa Bernard signs her painting in lower left-hand corner.

Artist Comments

Rustic jugs evoke a sense of nostalgia and charm. These vessels, often made from materials like ceramic, terracotta, or galvanized metal, exude a weathered and timeless appeal.

Three Rustic Jugs has a folksy feel that appeals to me because of its simplicity; just three simple jugs sitting in an unpolished setting. If you like vintage, then this still life painting will work in your home or office decor.

Signed: On the front 
COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A small still life painting of a fine china teacup and saucer, similar to those used by grandmothers and great-grandmothers.

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 feature decorations 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 bears the signature of the artist Teresa Bernard in the lower left corner.

This unique, small-scale painting is perfect for compact spaces or rooms with limited area. Measuring 6×6 inches, it was meticulously hand-painted on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. The composition of Great-Grandma’s Fine China Teacup spreads out around the edges of the canvas, making it fit in with any modern decor of your home or office. It can also be framed if desired. A personalized Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is included.

The actual canvas art does not have the copyright watermark ©️ teresabernardart.com.

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.

Title: The Study
Size: 14" w x 11" h
Canvas Type: Traditional Stretched Canvas
Frame: Unframed
Signed: On the front 
COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A still life painting featuring vintage items typically found in a home office or study. It has a vintage feel due to the single-color palette used.

This one-of-a-kind painting depicts a still life of vintage objects typical of a home office or study. Atop an antique wooden desk, there lies an arrangement consisting of a stack of hardcover books, a feather quill pen, a candlestick with a tall candle, a pair of spectacles, and a glass of wine. The monochromatic (single-color) palette used in this painting gives it a vintage look. The painting is signed in the lower left side by artist Teresa Bernard.

The Study painting will need to be mounted in a frame before it is shown because the edges of the traditional stretched canvas are unpainted or raw. This still life oil painting comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with your purchase.

The copyright watermark ©️ teresabernardart.com is used exclusively for online purposes and does not appear on the original canvas artwork.

Artist Comments

The Study is the first painting I’ve done using a monochromatic color scheme. 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.”

What exactly is monochromatic?

A monochromatic color scheme is based on variations of a single hue, creating a palette through different shades, tints, and tones of that color.

Artist Comments

“Still Life with Clay Pottery” is a monochromatic artwork depicting common household items from a typical Iron Age (1200-586 B.C.) kitchen in Israel or Jordan. 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.

A still life painting with a marine theme consists of some coral and a rusted nautical lantern with a white candle.

A nautical still life painting consisting of coral and lantern. The turquoise and tangerine coral sit in front of a rustic lantern with a white candle on top of a round pink marble table.

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 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.

COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A still life painting with vintage sewing thread. The type of sewing thread your great-grandmother most likely used to sew her family’s clothes.

A unique still life oil painting featuring four vintage sewing thread on spools made of wood. Each spool contains sewing thread of a different color: red, orange, green, and blue. A sewing needle pierces a green spool, set against a neutral gray backdrop to complement its counterpart painting. This artwork is the second in a series and bears the signature of oil painter Teresa Bernard in the bottom left corner.

This small 6×6-inch work of art will fit anywhere there is a limited amount of wall space you want to embellish or spruce up.

Regardless of your choice, it will be an attractive addition to your home, gallery, office, or any display space. A personalized Certificate of Authenticity (COA) accompanies the purchase of this still life painting.

Artist Comments

This painting is part The Wooden Spool Series. I call it “Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2” 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 these wooden thread spools, but that doesn’t mean they have no value. In some ways, they can still have some usefulness. One benefit of these vintage spools is their durability and the ability to repurpose them in a variety of ways long after the thread has run 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.

COA: Signed Certificate of Authenticity

A painting of antique sewing thread in a still life setting.  This is the first of two paintings depicting antique wooden spools.

The still life depicts two antique wooden spools wound with sewing thread, one in red and the other in blue. A sewing needle pierces the blue spool. The background is rendered in a light gray tone, matching its companion piece in the series. The artwork is signed by the vintage artist Teresa Bernard on the lower left side.

This original painting is perfect for cramped spaces or rooms because of its small size. It was painted by hand on 6×6-inch gallery wrap canvas. Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #1 has a stylish look because its composition extends over onto the canvas’s edges. This art piece will look fantastic in your house, business, or wherever it is hung, whether it is framed or not. An official Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is included with purchase of this still life painting.

Artist Comments

This painting is part of the Wooden Spool Series. I call it “Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #1” because we have now come to the age where thread no longer comes on wooden spools. Our great-grandmothers would have probably used sewing thread spun on wooden spools.

Wooden spools found today are often over 50 years old and have become collectible antiques. Nowadays, it is common to find sewing thread available for purchase on plastic spools. Our grandmothers, and certainly our mothers, would have used them for their sewing projects.

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.
