Artist of the moment………Mark Eberhard


Mark Eberhard is an outstanding painter of floral and bird imagery. Mark Eberhard was born in the year 1949.

Eberhard attended the University of Cincinnati earning a B.F.A. The artist went on to earn a M.F.A. from Yale University.

What I enjoy most about this artist is his sense of design and vivid color. Though his birds are sometimes painted as floating on water, the water doesn’t show any ripples or circles. Its just a flat shape of color. Simple but  beautiful.
