When Dale paints, he lets you glimpse his vision of how he sees the world. He sees each painting as an adventure, and is sometimes surprised at where his painting will lead him. You will often find Dale’s sense of humor expressed in his art.
Painting came late into Dale’s life with a watercolor class he was given as a gift. It was love at first splash. During the class, he balked and said,
“I don’t paint flowers,” and has gone on to paint a few (lots of) studies of sunflowers.
Dale has taken several workshops which have exposed him to new techniques and ideas, and each has added to his style, however he has maintained his own personality in his journey.
Dale’s work has been entered in many juried art shows with great success. He enjoys painting everything from boats, sunflowers to birdhouses, and sometimes Van Gough ripoffs. Dale supports and participates in many local art events, including Second Saturday Art Walk, Azalea Festival Art show, Festival of the Arts, and the Maritime Art Fest.
His work can be seen at several art galleries in Oregon and his home gallery. The studio is always open by appointment. Contact the Manley Art Center.
