About thís Old Dutch Painter

Since my retirement I started painting myself [ ≡ ‣ Direct link to my ℙaintings ]. I got more interested in the succesful Dutch painters from centuries ago. 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.

  1. Dear artist,

    My name is Matea and I am a part of an organization called amy that specializes in developing strategies for sustainable artistic careers.

    We saw your website on the Nationale Kunstdagen 2022 website and we found it very interesting!

    In order to support your professional development, we depart from an artistic tool called amy art app as the spine of any operational process, such as keeping an organized inventory, having online viewing rooms and public walls.

    We would love to have a chat with you and learn more about your artistic practice and see how we can help your professional development.

    We will be at the Nationale Kunstdagen on the 19th and 20th November. Let us know if one of the aforementioned dates suits you for a meeting.

    I look forward to hearing from you and have a great day!

    With kind regards,

    Matea Majic

    1. Thank you.
      On both days of the exposition I will be present, including the “VIP-evening” on saturday. We can have a talk there and then. My assistant / brother watches my stand during my absence.
