Rob Niezen’s nocturnes show the dream world of our cities created by artificial lights. Rainy night reflections create bursts of colour, and reveal our theatrical surroundings. These paintings are a testament to the vibrancy of the city, and vary from broader contextual city views to close-ups that render more abstract compositions, as the artificial lights create magic on small and large scale.

I’m being featured on two podcasts on the new “TalkAboutTalk”!
“TalkAboutTalk” is a new podcast hosted by Andrea Wojnicki. TalkAboutTalk focuses on “all things communication,” such as body language, using your voice, language, story-telling…. Listen to the 10th episode entitled, COMMUNICATING WITH COLOUR featuring OSA artist Lori Ryerson.
Hi folks! This is my first blogging notation. I’m a new member and happy to be included into your organization.
Yesterday, during a persistant downpour there was a moat around my barn studio as I nervously watched the tidal waves slowly rising up to my studio and shaking the old structure to it’s core. I’m about six metres from the water’s edge and this deluge didn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Even a bedraggled, lone seagull was tapping at my window trying to get in out of the downpour! Now today, it’s sunny and clear, and the building still stands albeit minus a few shingles.That’s the way it goes here in Passamaquoddy Bay. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it’ll change!
Last February I was up in the Lake of Bays area painting on a dock at a former camp grounds called Point Ideal. Just to show you how dedicated I am to my craft I’ve included a shot of me shivering and sniffling away En Plein Air.
I keep a cartoon/log of my exploits which I would like to share with you from time to time. I’ll try not to bore you too much as some of my notations date back to nineteen sixty one in Cuernavaca when I spent several months sketching in the markets by day and sleeping in the local cathedral each evening. Now that’s immersion!
