Since my retirement I started painting myself. I got more interested in the successful Dutch painters from centuries ago. Like Rembrandt van Rijn. Much longer ago I got interested in politics. In this century this interest got strong new boosts from 9/11 and the murder of Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn and an even stronger one from the murder of Theo van Gogh.
I am anti-nihilist, anti-communist and pro-civilization.
I am an old Dutch painter, hence: ODP.
I am a loving grandfather. That is why on Twitter and other platforms I also use the nickname Loving Granddad. My real name is Frans Groenendijk.
