Bertrand Girard
Nice, France

Bertrand Girard remembers painting as a child, and eventually turned his passion into a profession. Each piece he creates is a way for him to express his feelings. Many of his works depict landscapes and scenes from Paris, but these vignettes serve as a way to capture a mood, not just a place. Fun fact: Bertrand also plays classical guitar; he remembers picking up his first guitar at age 14 and has played ever since.

You can smell the strong coffee and pastry. Concern and respect for privacy from the server is captured by Girard who is probably sketching at a table unnoticed

Comments About This Piece

This painting captures a Parisian scene in the bar. The waiter and a customer are intrigued, watching a beautiful woman sitting at the counter looking for something in her yellow bag. This painting is on stretched canvas with nailed edges. It can be hung as is or framed.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
