The landscape, including gardens, fall colors, southwest, and mountain scenery, represent some of the preferred subject matter for Dale Landrum’s oil paintings. Originally from California, Dale has been an Oregon resident since 1990. He traces his earliest artistic influences to charcoal figure drawings, and notebooks of colorful “Hollywood Era” fashion illustrations done by his mother. Airplanes also captured his interest at a very early age, and this is where he developed an interest for drawing that continued through the years and later on led him to painting on canvas.

Dale has always worked largely independent of any particular school of art; however there is broad influence and inspiration from many groups and periods. In the late-nineteen eighties, while working for the Santa Fe National Forest in New Mexico, he began copying works by famous artists in his spare time; “I thought it was a good starting point to become familiar with the painting process, but I also began painting on location (plein air) and later joined up with local artists, and life-drawing groups in Santa Fe, and later in Eureka, California, where I kept a studio in old town for 10 years”. His greatest single influence was simply being out on the landscape; “that’s where the passion and ideas come from”. Painting the subject as it is affected by natural light was one of the main factors in learning to create an effective landscape. He was also inspired by many of the more colorful painters ranging from the impressionists and fauvists, to many of the well-known American regionalists and western artists.

Dale began dedicating himself full-time as an oil painter in 2003. He travels often, seeking out new subjects, especially rural scenes and natural places that are rapidly vanishing from the landscape. “Some people approach painting whereby the landscape is merely an accessory to the figure. My view is something of the opposite; I prefer the figure as an accessory to the landscape more often. I spent many years drawing the human figure from life, but I’ve always preferred the landscape as my main subject. Painting allows me to express some of the passion for the world we live in; a world in which open space is becoming more and more scarce. If I can translate the inspiration I have for open space, then I will have accomplished that goal”.
