Donald Niddrie

I am a relative newcomer to the world of art, not viewing but doing. My wife inspired me to first pick up a pencil and then a brush for she decided on her own to pursue painting as one of her hobbies a few years ahead of me. Like many, where to start was a problem for me but joining my wife for a class with a local watercolorist got me going. Where it led is what you see in the photos of a few pieces of my art some might think worthy of display. For me it’s all about what makes me happy. People, places, and things in nature captivate me so that is what I paint or draw. I came to pastel out of frustration with watercolor although I really love what happens as colors are mingled when brushes and paints meet on paper.


Unfortunately, too many of my early watercolors turned into scrap paper after a promising start. Pastel is a medium where my miscues can be rectified before I feel I should start all over, a real plus if you want to complete things. I paint much for my own personal pleasure or for the pleasure of the person who owns the unique face, place, or thing (the dog is Lola, our pet Yorkie who once belonged to my son) that I have decided to capture with pen, pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolors or even acrylics, as time and penchant permits). For me, experimenting with all the different mediums available in the world of art is both a challenge and an opportunity for expanding my horizons on my journey through life.


My EEAG page is the place you will find all of my work, although some originals now hang in the homes of acquaintances and friends who believe they were worthy of such an honor.  Puerto Rico, its people, and the EEAG, for at least the winter months of every year back in our hometown of Cold Spring Harbor, New York, provides the inspiration for me to keep chipping away at my proclivity for “doing” art.
