A college instructor in a life drawing class once told me that we would never paint things the way he did. And that is becuase we only see things in our own special way. The way we interprit these is like a fingerprint, only one in the world, and the way we choose to define that on paper or canvas is what art is. It is as individualized as each of us are. As we mature and grow, our art becomes an extention of ourselves and the way we see the world.
Biography: Bernie's art is self-taught, with the exception of a couple of life drawing classes in college and standard art classes in high school in the early 1970's. He always was drawing and coloring as a kid and later sketching as a young adult. It was after a military enlistment when he became much more serious about his expressions and what his subjects were. Satisfied with the human anatomy he had studied, he dove into more expression with color and the effect it had on the picture he was working on. Soon, he started using a monochrome palette with his acrylic paintings and liked the outcome he was achieving. Still, he loved watercolors and continued to learn and paint many things in his surroundings. His love for nature, including birds, plants and flowers, and landscapings with wonderful stormy skies. Bernie has now taken an early retirement due to illness' and a progressing eye disease that will leave him blind in a few years. Now, he is driven to his painting and has a clock that is ticking away, to a point he will no longer be able to see anymore or paint. Please take a look at his work and take a few moments to sign his guestbook, as he loves to hear from everyone. He plans to make ALL his work available for print soon thru this site but is having to get the paintings re-camera-shot for higher resolutions. If you are intrested in getting a print, either send him an email, or check back on a later date.
