Dale Livezey began his focused study of the Montana landscape in 1978 when, at the age of 20, he left behind the Ohio farm country where he was raised. Always an independent spirit, Dale’s study in oil painting has been self-directed over the course of his decades painting. An intimate experiential knowledge of light and natural forms guides his highly color-centric compositions. Time outdoors is a key element in his approach, although paintings are largely produced in the studio.
