"RED EARTH" oil 5x7 $300 Available Through Hayden Hays

This year Dix Baines participated in the 2011 Panhandle-Plains Invitational Art Show and Sale, held in Canyon, Texas. As this was only his second year to participate, we were excited to learn that both his pieces, “Tierra Roja” and “First Light on the Castle Rock” sold. Often Dix will explore an image in a smaller format and then revisit it in a larger size.  It allows him to work through the composition and resolve any issues that might pop up. With “Tierra Roja”, he did the reverse, however.  He enjoyed the image so much the first time, he revisited it in a 5×7, which is now available through “The Hayden Hays Gallery”, located at the The  Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.

The Broadmoor will always be a special place for Dix as initially, as an Interior Designer and Project manager, he had the opportunity to work on the property during a remodel.  Later, his art was brought to the attention of the property, which now has several originals and giclees as part of their permanent collection.

For those that live in Colorado, these are the kind of sunsets we have the opportunity to see everyday.  Some days they are orange, such as in “Boulder View” and other days pink and other days yellow.  Over the years, during the hours of sunsets, the Baines’ family can often be found in the middle of our street enjoying the beauty of the sunsets.  Take a minute today and marvel at the beauty that surrounds us.  Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines


"RAINBOW" 8x10 $1200


When Dix Baines stepped away from a full-time job as a Project Designer in a design firm, to pursue a career as an artist, he told me one day that he never wanted to paint, as he put it, “girls in pink dresses”. In other words, he wanted to paint from life; everywhere and everything.  He had and still has no interest in revisiting the same subject over and over, rather wanting to try his hand at painting the world before him.  This goal has taken him to many locations where he has visited images from the Southwest Churches, to the vistas of the land to, the fish in mountain streams.  No matter what the subject, he strives to express the images through paint with accuracy and honesty. -Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines

Dix Baines is participating in the Western Invitational Art show  in Great Falls, Montana this week March 16th through March 19th. The show is being held at

"FISH RISING" 12x6 $5200



Rocky Mountain National Park is such an amazing place.  With the light of the sun setting in the Colorado sky, it is even more so.  This painting just sold at the Hayden Hays Gallery in Colorado Springs. They have only represented Dix’s work for a short time, but have done a great job and have had several paintings sell.  We look forward to working with them for years to come.
