Description Windmills on the Rhine, was painted from a few old postcards that I had collected over the years. It was a fun painting to do, because it is a classic landscape of old Holland. I tried to capture the sunlight between the windmills and on the river. The larger Original painting is available from the Artist.
Nico Diemel, Port Orford Oregon Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Welcome, I hope you enjoy viewing my Art!
Growing up in Indonesia & Holland, I have always been fascinated and interested by Fine Art and many other Artistic expressions. I have painted & schetched since I was very young. My mother was an Artist and I have learned a great deal from her flair for creating art & her zeal for living life. After coming to the USA in the late fifties, I became a foreign car mechanic for over 25 years in the San Francisco Bay area, and in Soulsbyville in the Sierra mountains of California. (but as a Dutch-Indo artist Art was always my first love)
The Artistic Hippie culture in San Francisco was a great era to have experienced first hand, and I still draw on those crazy days for my painting and my designs.
So most of my life I have been an Artist, painting on canvas or anything I could find, and creating free-form art in wood & metal and in many other media. I like vivid colors and sharp contrasts in my creations. I also love to shoot photographs of the great landscapes up here in the Pacific North-West, and just paint this beautiful world that God created & that I see & experience around me each day.
