Michael Dailey has been making landscape paintings for more than 40 years. During that time he has been balancing line and color to produce paintings about the nuances of space, light, and atmosphere that comprise our memories of time and place. We value Dailey's paintings not because they provide a literal description of a landscape, but because they offer us a chance to revisit and savor part of our past.
Born and educated in Iowa, Michael Dailey moved to Seattle in 1963 to teach painting and drawing at the University of Washington. He is regarded as an influential and much loved teacher by his former students, many of whom are now practicing artists. Dailey retired in 1998 but continues to live and paint in the Northwest. 44 illus.
