This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Artist Don Dahlke considers travel his greatest influence. In his early years of painting, the American-born artist lived in Greece. He returned to the U.S. with a new understanding of light and shadow. Years later after his sojourn to the West Indies he added the vivid palette of tropical colors to his paintings. Don now resides in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and continues to energize his brilliant color schemes and architectural compositions.

Dahlke's paintings are created with an unmistakable signature style. The shadow of a palm tree cast upon a tropical cottage and its window shutters imbues each painting with a powerful light. By interpreting light and shadow with an exceptional sensitivity, Dahlke creates a pleasing mood. Saturated with luminous and vibrant color, his paintings convey optimism, each capturing a peace and serenity through the ocean views.

Shadows on the exterior of a colorful house, objects in the room leading to the window which is open to a sapphire sea, and the vibrant blue sky above add to the three-dimensional quality of a Dahlke painting. Where do these images come from? The retreats, the mysterious objects inside them, the inviting water and cobalt sky all come from the imagination and experiences of this modern master.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in May of  2006 by Dena Langdon, who is a collector of Dahlke's work:


He was born in the 1950s in Portland, Oregon, the son of a feed and garden merchant.  A popular artist in his home state, he focuses his work on Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. 

Dahlke currently resides in San Miguel Allende in Mexico and also paints in St. Thomas, the U.S. Virgin Islands.  He painted whimsical images of Island life, and created abstracts in mixed media.   Dahlke  is now particularly known for his architecturals of open doorways looking through a small Caribbean house to a view through a window.  Shadows of palm fronds are across the front of the house.  These are large oils in bright colors.
