Didymus Bernadotte is the brush name of Glenn Carlson who was born and raised on the Canadian prairies. At an early age he wanted to be an artist but was sidetracked into becoming an architect. In retirement he became a mariner and spent eight years at sea searching for truth, goodness and beauty. Thusly prepared, he began painting. His subject matter reflects his impressions of flat winter prairie scenes and seascapes all simplified and reduced to the proportion of the golden rectangle. Now, in his early eighties he continues to paint, sculpt and search.
