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

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.

kind regards, Gerard
