SOLD

In the home of my collector Chuck from San Diego hangs a print of Norman Rockwell's 'The Problem We All Live With' .

It is considered an iconic image of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States as it depicts a little girl escorted to school by four U.S. marshals.

This is a much discussed piece at Chuck's household, especially by his daughter Maia and grand-daughter Cori. So much so that Chuck asked me to paint both of them in front of this great painting by Rockwell.

It was true pleasure to paint and I especially love that Cori and Maia are holding hands. This little gesture adds so much to this painting. The portrait of Cori and Maia was a Christmas gift and as Chuck told me it was the hit of the holidays. Everybody loved it and to hear that just makes me feel so blessed!

kind regards, Gerard

The Scream



The Scream
painting of a woman enjoying painting The Scream by Edvard Munch

'I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.'

That's what Edvard Munch wrote about his painting The Scream in his diary. This painting has always been a personal favorite and thought it would be perfect for my third giant scale painting. Hope you enjoy it!

2006

One night I was watching the 8 o'clock news with Noraly Beijer on Dutch television and wondered what I was actually watching. I decided to take a picture of my television screen to freeze time and use it as a starting point for a painting. As it turned out what I was watching was a candy colored environment with a tank in it.

kind regards, Gerard
