While she's waiting for customers to show up, the woman in Liquor Store seems lost in her own private concerns. As a painter I'm interested in moments like this, it makes me wonder what she's thinking about. I also love that while there so much going on around her, there's also a powerful sense of stillness and peacefulness in this painting. The colors are mostly cool, but there's a lot of warmth in the painting as well.

kind regards, Gerard

I remember first seeing a Rothko painting in a book. I thought it was so simple and it didn't do anything for me. When I saw one in real life I remembered he once mentioned one could best experience his art from a mere 12" or 30 cm distance. So I did. And then something happened. I was overwhelmed by all nuances in colors and felt swept away to a new reality of sorts. Really wonderful and hard to explain. But I do understand why people cry in front of his works. When it gets you it is that powerful.

There are hardly any other paintings I know of who have their finger on the pulse of their time better than this painting by Robert Rauschenberg. Just look at that pointing finger of Kennedy.

I had so much fun painting the Stella Colors painting the other day that I thought why not make a slightly larger, but different version of it. And so here it is.

You’re now viewing my painting of a woman enjoying a self portrait by Paul Gauguin. He dedicated this self portrait to Van Gogh. In it Gauguin appears as Jean Valjean, anti-hero of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables’, who, while vilified by society, remains true to his personal morality. Seen on the right in profile is Émile Bernard, a fellow painter, who later accused Gauguin of taking credit for his ideas – not without some justification.
