The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.

He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after.

Prints of Jackie are available from aug 15 until august 22. Just click here to see a preview!

After being locked up in my studio for over a month I'm happy to present my very first large scale painting Kiss!

It measures a whopping 71x47" or 180x120cm. By far the largest hyperrealism painting I did thus far. For years I dreamt of painting something that big and that's why I organised a crowfunding event on Kicktstarter back in may.

Even though I didn't get fully funded with the support of my backers I was finally able to paint a really big one! So thank you all for your support, I really, really appreciate it!!!

Kiss shows a man enjoying a painting entitled The Kiss by Gustav Klimt. He painted it between 1907 and 1908, the highpoint of his so-called Golden Period, when he painted a number of works in a similar gilded style. I always loved this painting and thought it would be a perfect motive for my first large scale painting.

I'm now in process of getting everybody their rewards. If you haven't gotten yours, hold tight, it will get to you soon!

I'm also looking forward to paint more museum pieces (large scale I hope!) and exhibit them together in the nearby future.

Prints of Kiss are still available until aug 8. Just click here to your limited edition print while you still can!

Thanks again and I'll keep you posted!

kind regards, Gerard

Catalogue- Woman Browsing Catalogue Of Library On Computer

I was first attracted to this scene because of the stillness. Even though there's is lot going on around her (lots of books), she just sits there working quietly, but diligently on the computer. I love that sense of serenity and untroubledness. I also love the way she uses a modern day invention to look up an old one: her favorite book. I just couldn't help but paint it.

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

Kickstarter Campaign Ended

Kickstarter Campaign Ended

Yesterday my Kickstarter campaign to support me to paint large scale masterpieces came to an end. I'm sorry to say I didn't get fully funded, but happy to report I got enough backers to paint one large painting!

This last month has been something of a roller coaster with lots of ups and downs, but I'm thrilled about all the support you guys gave me. So thank you once again and now I'll start work on my large painting! Of course I keep you updated!

All the best, Gerard Boersma
