A Good Day to all Art Lovers and Patrons Of The Arts.
My name is Gert J Rheeders. I am a retired professional career person that retired in 2009 to spend more time
with my great passion in life namely - ART. Which have now become my main occupation - Especially Modern Day Digital Art.
Since then I have concentrated on creating mainly Digital Art, practicing my hobby of Photography and completing
a few classic and modern style acrylic paintings.
I joined Fine Art America in 2014 uploading mainly digital artworks with various themes and sizes to my Art Portfolio
with my latest statistical count of more than 6490 artworks and photographs on Fine Art America.
My main passion in art is to digitally restore, refurbish and reproduce the works of art of the Old Masters mainly
Rembrandt and Albert Bierstadt but I have also digitally restored and reproduced the works of Jasper Francis Cropsey,
Winslow Homer, Worthington Whittredge, John Singer Sargent and many others including total Anonymous Landscape
And Portrait Masters.
I also have the passion to create digitally, through various digital processes, totally new artworks in the Style Of Albert
Bierstadt, Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse (see my entry for this contest in the style of Henri Matisse) and various
other Great Names In Art.
