Dale Shipman Artwww.ArtPal.com/pianomanosu
My name is Dale Shipman and I live in Bixby, Oklahoma. I have been highly interested in art since I was a child. I grew up wanting to be an artist and eventually started getting serious about my art in the mid 70's doing pastel portraits for friends and fellow workers. Later I became more interested in painting in oils and took classes from a popular artist in the Tulsa area, David Knick, who taught the style of the old masters and I fell in love with the technique. I loved the style of Rembrandt and other old masters of that era. I also have always been a fan of the early American landscape artists Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Native American art, wildlife art, portraits and other subject matters. For the most part I am self taught ,studying the styles the masters by observing their techniques and styles. I have spent most of my adult life doing art as a past time while I worked as a designer for various engineering companies in the Tulsa area. Now that I'm retired I am spending my full time to art and music since I have played music all of my life and still enjoy it too. Thank you for visiting my site and hope you come back. God bless!
