Bernard used a huge sliced brown letter envelope as canvas for this mixed media work.Of course, as belonging to his philosophy of the permanent use of materials this envelope had had a life as transporter of administrative papers .He used indian ink, acrylics and watercolour.

    What a joy to see. Hello Ruth hope all is well with you and your Daughter…Love to you both

  • Vickie, I had a wonderful time – Elizabeth Bravo visited me over here in Germany and than we continued to Paris and met Varry. I am still full of impressions with these two artists and Elizabeth helped me with photographing some things new. I am so overwhelmed.
    You travelled too, hope you had a very good time as well. Big hugs to you Vickie.Ruth

    Inspiration and uplifting portrait. I can see the hope in this beautiful face. The yellow and green together are mesmerising.

  • Anthea you are right, this face looking up has the neverending hope in the eyes and expression and that’s a great thing about Bernard’s art that this can mostly be found.Glad to see you!

    Love this Ruth…the colors and his signature painting style.

  • Elizabeth just asked why he never signed his artworks – I can’t say a reason but would always recognize his work everywhere and your comment is so appreciated as you show me, it is like this for others too.Ruth

    I love hearing more now about the material used…..this piece I don’t remember but must be in the collections you still have that Patrick photographed. It is so much fun seeing them new again knowing that they can be made into large framed images.
    I love the green and orange that was used on this. It seems filled with happiness and love peering out… if seeing something with new eyes.
