After the 4th comes figure no. 5!

Charles Demuth completed eight abstract portraits between 1924 and 1929 as tributes to modern American artists, writers, and performers. Though not a physical likeness, Demuth created this portrait of his friend, the poet and physician William Carlos Williams, using imagery from Williams’s poem "The Great Figure," which evokes the sights and sounds of a fire engine speeding down the street. The intersecting lines, repeated "5," round forms of the numbers, lights, street lamp, and blaring sirens of the red fire engine together infuse the painting with a vibrant, urban energy. Demuth derived the title from the poem.

During my Kickstarter campaign I did manage to find some time to paint. I just finished this portrait of two elderly women gambling in Las Vegas. Hope you enjoy it!

I also began to work on my large scale painting and I'm loving it! Don't want to give too much details just yet, but this sure is a painting I will enjoy from start to finish! I'll keep you posted!

All the best, Gerard Boersma

Whistler Books- Painting Of Books On Artists James McNeill Whistler And Others



Whistler Books
painting of books on artists James McNeill Whistler and others

2012

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.

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
6" x 6" or 15 x 15 cm
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?
