Back from our trip to Ireland...

Tami and I just returned from Ireland... here we are pictured at the National Art Gallery of Ireland in Dublin. I have a ton reference photos to work from... over 1900 to be exact! I am planning a large painting series titled "Enchanted Ireland". There will be an abundance of small oil studies for this series so I'll have plenty to offer on ebay in a few weeks.

Thanks for your patience.

JAKERS! Bernie's off to Ireland!

Jakers!... Bernie and Tami are off to Ireland for their 20th Wedding Anniversary.
Bernie's artwork will be on hold till the end of the month but promises a series of paintings when he returns.
Jakers... the Irish expression for WOW!... sums up perfectly how we feel about this trip. We are like "Wild Geese" returning home. We look forward to sharing our adventure with you through Bernie's artwork upon our return...
