Weaver St Realty Artist: JOHN WESLEY VANDERHEYDEN
About the Artist
I recently retired from an over 35 year career with Verizon Communications doing internal computer work for them. I chose to move to North Carolina from Washington, D.C. because of the natural beauty of the state. We have wonderful access to mountains and seashore here in the Piedmont. As a landscape painter I have more material than I can ever get to.
I work in 3 or 4 styles and landscapes are my prominent subject matter. Bright color combinations usually dominate my paintings. My scenes are from all over the United States with a lot of the Southwest Desert and Washington, D.C. I’ve done a lot of water studies and floral still-lifes. Why do people love looking at water? I think it has to do with the constant change between patterning and randomness. Where patterns meet chaos is a recurring theme of mine. Examples of this would be changing ripples in a river or light dappled maples in the fall. I self-published an art book in 2007. It is on google link: http://goo.gl/3fDj9
