Dolgor Dugarova

Giethoorn, the Venice of Noord

Material: Oil colors and a palette knife on canvas
Size: 60 x 80 cm

Giethoorn, the Venice of Noord Beautifully picturesque Giethoorn. The Venice of Holland. It is a magnet to my soul. Giethoorn is a picturesque Dutch village, as are many other Dutch villages. The numerous bridges (there are more than 170) give the village a special charm. The bridges are quite curved: this was done on purpose so that it would be convenient to sail under them. The painting was made with oil paint and a palette knife.

My name is Dolgor Dugarova. I am from Siberia, Russia and I live now in the Netherlands. Several years ago I lost my dearest people: my son, my mother, father and my husband. During that time I felt me lonely and depressive. Until I have decided to take a new path. I was looking for effective ways to find strength and energy to release the pain, sorrow and mental exhaustion. It has developed to a huge creative urge. I began to paint. Through painting I discovered that I can do much more than I had dared to think. My paintings stand out. This gives my inspiration to keep going and to share. I start teaching other people to paint. I have now a wonderful creative work and a wonderful creative path. Everything I do is very important and valuable for me. My work fills me with harmony and love. I am an all round artist. I like to express myself freely using the brush. It is the most fascinating and exciting state. Endless search for new things and experiment with different techniques, materials and styles. The canvas is a place of relaxation and fascinating discoveries. I work with acrylics, oil, egg tempera, pencils, ink and airbrush.
