Dr. Bernard A. Widen 's Bio

Dr. Bernard Widen retired from dentistry in '86 and discovered art in '87 (after a planned retirement in dental research didn't work out).

Progressing through acrylic, colored pencils and watercolor, he finds oil painting suits his temperament and provides "pigment power" to execute the strongest rendering.

The artist's subject matter is varied, however, he prefers painting people, particularly portraits and recently completed a commission for Senator Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio.

Widen's goal is to capture the essence of any subject, paint beyond those parameters and create an exciting emotional experience that causes the viewer to say "WOW".
