I happened to witness this scene in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.There I saw two women cuddled together on a bench touched by a painting of Karel Dujardin, a Dutch golden age painter. In return I was touched by this whole scene that I had to paint it.

This painting is a study for the larger scaled painting Klimt Books (pictured below, sold). I wanted to experiment a little with the composition to see how it would look in real life before I started ot work on the image I had in mind. As turns out it worked just great and I hardly changed a thing.

If you're interested in purchasing Raphael just click on the link above to enter the auction. Start price is just 75 dollars.

James McNeill Whistler is one of my all time favorite artists and when I saw this book on the bookshelf I knew I wanted to paint it. I love how he looks at us with this bold self assured look of his. I also love how his whole life is cramped into this bundle of pages. That's what remains of us after we're gone I guess: a bunch of stories with a price tag on it.

Homer- Still Life Painting Of Iliad and Odyssey

One way to look at this book painting is to see it as a way to promote reading. The more you read, the more words you know. And as words, besides images, are powerful tools to think with: the more words you know, the better your thoughts will be. I thought this bookshelf with Homer's Iliad was just perfect to illustrate this point.

As a painter I'm interested in moments that usually pass by unnoticed, like the scene on Drive Through. I love to capture those moments so you can observe them quietly. Then it's obvious, at least to me it is, that moments like this say a lot about todays society.

Connexxion- Painting Of People On The Bus

Connexxion
painting of people on the bus

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite

2008

click here to bid

After all the giclees and larger scaled paintings I thought it might be time for something smaller, like Connexxion. It depicts people on a city bus owned by a company called Connexxion, hence the title.

I really like the scene through the windows, it makes a wonderful composition. I also love the silhouette on the inside of the bus, contrasting with the passenger in the foreground. It gives the painting more depth I think.

Just click on the link above if you're interested in purchasing todays painting. Start price is just 75 dollars.

I was first attracted to this scene because of all the neon lights and reflections, they make for such a colorful painting. I also love how the figure on this painting has this wondrous look about her, to me it looks like she's in awe of all the vibrant colors of the world around her. Isn't that how life should be? Being in awe of it all?
