Bernard’s acrylic abstracts, pastel paintings, and ink sketches exhibit great power. “Passion, color, texture, spontaneity, and balance are the core of my acrylic abstract paintings and contemporary jazz and music pieces,” says Bernard.

“Inspired by the struggle, humor, and spirituality in the balance of life, I paint – usually without a brush.” Bernard’s unique method of painting – often using his hands, cardboard or rags – has become one of his trademarks. “I pour the paint, I throw it, I drop it and I spray it,” he says. “Colors have value in every painting, and the color itself is spiritual if arranged in a manner that speaks to the soul and stirs the passion of the beholder. Every painting tells a story. No matter how simple, no matter how complex.”
