Recently I have been fascinated with painting birds in flight. What I love about this subject matter is that the birds are detached from everything. Usually when I paint, my subject matters are grounded, have a starting point, and are attached to things. At this point in my life, detachment is a curious thing…

Bernadette’s images are available as high quality canvas prints which are larger reproductions of her art. They are un-stretched and come packaged in a tube for easy shipping and transportation. Simply take them to your favorite custom picture framer and have the canvas mounted onto stretcher bars. There is enough black edging to cover a gallery width stretcher bar. Once stretched, they are ready to hang. No glass or frame necessary. Bernadette’s giclee (jee-clay) canvas prints are a beautiful and affordable choice for your home or office.
