It's been a while since I last posted here, that's because I've been mad busy painting Library. On the painting you see a young woman looking for books at the library in my hometown. Getting the lighting straight was quite difficult, especially the blues and whites on the right. Of course painting all the books wasn't easy neither! All in all I think I did a good job here and I sure hope you enjoy Library as well.

In other news I had a blast at the recent opening of my solo show at Artemisia. Peter de Haan, editor of the book Famous Frisians in America had a great talk about my art and even collected comments about my art from all over the world! People from Senegal, China, South Africa, India, America, France and other countries all responded positively to my works which was really flattering. Peter even stressed the fact that somebody should organize an duo-exhibition of me and Edward Hopper. How about that!

In addition to my solo show my works will be represented by Amstel Gallery at the Afordable Art Fair from oct 29 - nov 1 at Gashouder, Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. For more information about the fair please click here

kind regards, Gerard Boersma
