Daily Palette Double Feature

Rock Paper Scissors, oil on canvas, 30" x 40", 2012

S. Richard (Dick) Shook earned his BA in Art and Design from Iowa State University and did graduate work in drawing, painting, and printmaking.  He went on to law school but left to pursue a career in the arts.  He has worked in a variety of areas, including illustration, design, and construction.  He now focuses primarily on oil painting.  Mr. Shook currently resides in Slater, Iowa.

Mr. Shook writes this about his art:

"I like the way oil translates light and I have a fascination with geometry and of course color, although I haven't allowed my palette to settle down yet.  I prefer to paint figures and portraits I suppose because life is about relationships and people are tuned to the most subtle of expressions, either in their face or the movement of the body."

Dick Shook's work was featured on the Daily Palette yesterday as well.  Don't miss yesterday's page!
