I painted this impressionistic style landscape during a recent paint out with my local plein air group... OOPS. The scene is set in the coastal town of Surf City on Topsail Island, North Carolina. This Surf City Crab sign caught my eye and was a pleasure to paint.

This painting, on a gessoed panel with painted sides, is easily framed or displayed with a decorative easel.

All my paintings are signed originals using artist grade oils and archival surfaces. "Certificate of Authenticity" included.

You asked for it... Cotton paintings coming SOON!

Many of my patrons are asking themselves... "When is Bernie gonna paint those cotton-pickin cotton paintings?"...

Your wait is almost over...

I have sent the kids to the fields of Eastern North Carolina to pick cotton for one of my favorite daily painting subjects to paint... cotton. My series last year was such a success that I have had several inquiries about painting more... it's that time of year (since I only paint these from life... not photographs)... so be on the look out here on my blog for updates. My patrons that have asked for these will have first crack at purchasing them... I'll launch them here and send out a personal email to you all personally.

Last year's painting... "A Branch of Cotton"...
