This painting titled "Bighorn Touching The Sky" shows a fantastic specimen of the brute force of nature. This painting is still being worked on but it is the first Bighorn sheep I have ever painted and I was excited to show it even though it has a way to go before completion.
Photos were sent to me showing the rock formations and environment that these sheep inhabit by a hunter who is waiting for the first print of this painting. He knows all about the environment where these magnificent animals can be found and has been a really big help to ensure that my details are accurate.
Prints will be available in the hunting and cabin art category on my website soon. If interested the 36" x 44" original will be available, just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing.

When I heard the news that Nye's will be closing I could not believe that this legendary restaurant was soon to become part of Minneapolis history. This piece I did about Nye's is titled "What Just Happened In There?" and has been a popular piece. This art has been featured in art shows and books and I think it's popularity is because of the quirky but local atmosphere that permeates Nye's. You know what I mean if you have been that any night after 8:00 PM.
At any rate this 16"x24"piece is signed and available and would be a great holiday gift to the restaurant aficionado by clicking on the "Art Prints For Sale" button on the "bergerfinearts.com"home page and scrolling down to the "Legendary Restaurant Series Section". Or just click here for the link http://bergerfinearts.com/products-page/legendary-restaurant-series-art-prints/

This painting was part dream and part something else. I think the combination of these two images make an interesting and dynamic visual.
Prints of this will be available soon so watch the "American Section" of my website. www.bergerfinearts.com if interested in purchasing a print.
This is newest painting for the "Ghost On The Prairie Series". I am still working on it but it is getting close to being done and I wanted to post it to show that I am still producing new work for this series even though it has been awhile
This was started by a request for a 1970 Torino in the style of the series. If you look close you can see the ghost standing to the side of the car. Prints will be available as soon as I finish the work. Watch in the new art section of my web site.
But something was still missing. The "Aha" moment came and the feather was added. The feather floating about is a direct connection to the movie Forest Gump if you have seen the movie you will understand. I thought this was exactly the right touch to finish this painting.
For those of you who bought a print without the feather I will send a new one with the feather if you want it at no charge to you. Email me and let me know.

It's late summer and this new piece is for all the people who fly in their dreams. This did not reproduce well for this post but the lake has more reflections in it that's showing here. I may go back into this one. I like the idea of leaves falling out of the pattern in the dress. Starting to run out of summer.

Art That Raises Awareness and Recognizes Those Who Serve.
I was honored to have In the hallway of Farmington High School During Farmington’s Patriotic Day Celebration my 40” x 40” framed print of mine from the “Preamble Flag Series”. This painting is part of a series of historic American flag paintings that I created that feature parts of the preamble of the American Constitution.
Custom Fine Art Designed For The Event
Every Veteran that was at the Farmington event signed their name directly on the art print, although the first few were hesitant about marking up the art they soon got iinto it, while the local boy scout troops thank them personally, on the spot for their service to their country.
A Reminder To The Community
Now that the soldiers have each signed their name to the print this artwork will hang in the local government center where the community can see and read all the names of the soldiers who have and are serving their country from the Farmington community.
The event is a collaborative effort of the Farmington American Legion, Farmington Lions Club, Farmington Veterans of Foreign Wars, Farmington Warrior to Citizen Program and School District 192.
On April 12 of "Make A Wish" of Eastern Iowa held their annual fundraiser and I could not have been more happy to donate this piece of custom art to their cause. The piece called "River Front Tango" features a couple doing one last early morning tango on the beautiful riverfront on the Mississippi river at Clinton. A barge slowly passes as it navigates the upcoming bridges in the distance while the light tower's is beginning to compete with the rays of a rising sun.
Unique Art For A Cause
The idea of coming up with a unique piece for this event was a lot of fun. The painting accomplished what I had hoped for and raised some needed money and awareness for kids and families having a rough time.
Barb Jacobson has lead the Clinton County branch of the "Make A Wish Foundation for the last 19 years. Call Joni McDonnel at 243-8213 to donate and make a difference.

This painting will have a poem to go with it as soon as I can find the time to write it. While painting this one I thought a lot about how it will come together.

This one depicts a Tabby cat in the barn that knows how to handle his area. You can tell by the look that he is all business and is reviewing the activities in the barn from his perch upon a bale of straw.
I also created a video to show the whole drawing/painting process it takes in creating this image. From initial sketch to finished acrylic painting this video uses time lapse so it only takes one minute to view the sketch process as well as the painting process.
This will soon be added to my website www.bergerfinearts.com for sale along with the second of the series coming soon.
To view time lapse videos of this artwork, either follow this link, or scroll below for embedded videos.
Video 1: Concept Sketch
Video 2: Finished Painting
This recent painting depicts a patrol in Vietnam moving out. I had this sketch for quiet some time and after talking to a veteran friend of mine who spent some time in Vietnam in 1968 I just decided to finally finish painting it. I have not done a military painting for a while and I intend to do more along this line as the year progresses.
