An example of fine art by David Oakley

David has always had a passion for drawing and painting, and was a prolific artist from a very young age up through high school. He then focused his art abilities in the discipline of mechanical engineering, with an emphasis on technical drawing. Time constraints from a career as a full time research engineer and later senior manager limited his art interests to photography, however he never lost his love of drawing and painting. In 2007 he finally decided to take up painting again.

David is a Raleigh, North Carolina native and has concentrated on painting landscapes, primarily of North Carolina scenes. His love of nature, landscapes, and structures are reflected in his paintings. He gravitates toward older classical structures that have aged and weathered over time, and enjoys capturing the remarkable color effects and beauty of these structures in simple rural settings. David's primary medium is oil.
David is a member of the Fine Arts League of Cary (http://www.fineartsleagueofcary.org/main.htm) and Visual Art Exchange.
