Merry Christmas! The last painting of this year is situated in The Hague, the same city where I now have my solo show at the ROI.

Tram Platform shows a young girl standing on a platform waiting for her tram to show up. She's holding her cell phone, but she's looking up at something behind the viewer. I don't usually paint my figures like this, but it sure adds something extra here.

Through the window of the tram we see another girl playing with her phone as well. I couldn't paint a scene like this just a few years ago. It seems like we now spend every free moment with our phones. We grew so attached to it. The trams used to be ad free too.

In january I'm picking up my daily painting practice again. You can expect a small painting almost every day. I'm also planning on publishing more articles on my other blog about my philosophies on art and life or society in general. For now I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

kind regards, Gerard




Tram Platform and 27 other paintings are on view at my solo show at ROI, Heerengracht 23, The Hague. The show runs until jan. 31, 2012. You can see all paintings included in the short video above.
