PURCHASE HOLIDAY GIFTS

Several years ago I was sitting at a table with DIX BAINES and MICHAEL OME UNTIEDT (another great artist – http://michaelomeuntiedt.webs.com/) listening to them talk about painting, creating and in general just what they both did….ART.  After a while of listening, I realized just how very different artists see and interact with the world.  Their eyes seem to pick up on things that are often lost to the rest of us.  They see the orange coming through the trees as the sun hits the leaves.  They see the shadows of the fish in a stream.  They see the turquoise in the sky, where the rest of us just see blue.  They see the abundance of color in snow, where the rest of us just see white.  Thank goodness for artists because without them most of us would miss what is good in the world.  Through their work, they bring to to forefront the spectacular and let us enjoy it too.

If you have a creative soul in your life or if you are a creative soul, and looking for a holiday gift DIX BAINES is offering a GETTING STARTED ART LESSON PACKAGE FOR $250.  This will include 5 hours of instruction at the STUDIO  which will include the following lessons:  1. Palette and Mixing  2. Thumbnails/reference/photo/scrap  3. DEMO-completiong of a demo. Assigned: search images to paint  4. Mixing and Painting your image  5. Critique-values and edges

To purchase an art package please contact the DIX BAINES STUDIO at 720.353.2670 or join us for

It is amazing how many people have a desire to learn how to paint.  Personally, I am not one of them.  I’m content to watch Dix Baines create.  If, however, you are someone who has always wanted to dip into a pool of oil paint and smooth it across a canvas, Dix can help you get started.  Stop by Dix Baines’ Studio for “Santa’s Art Shop”  Thurs, Dec 13th (1-5), Fri, Dec 14th (1-8), and Sat, Dec 15th (1-5) and start your own art journey.  He will be on hand to answer all of your “getting started” questions about materials such as canvas, paints, and brushes, as well as setting up a pallate and space to work in.  Free getting started handouts will be available. Still want more help?  Dix will have openings beginning in January for lessons.  These can be arranged to fit each artist’s individual needs, whether a novice or seasoned painter.

TALK SHOP

Come and “talk shop” about producing art.  Perhaps you have wanted to try your hand at painting or maybe you are an artist who would like additional instruction to further your abilities. Dix Baines will be available to answer your questions.  In addition, he is allotting time in the coming year to teach lessons and can tailor a lesson package to meet your needs. A free start up handout will be available. Though very introductory in nature, it provides information about grounds, paints, varnishes, brushes, and additional supplies and materials.  These can be further discussed in the Studio with the artist at SANTA’S “ART SHOP” and OPEN HOUSE.

"Moraine Morning" 7x9 $450 unframed

An Artist friend of ours once told me that “…he was just a guy hanging out in his basement trying to mix green.” Although, there are days when that is exactly how  DIX BAINES feels, after having abserved the art process up close and personal for the past 18 years, I can say with certainty, that being an artist is a great deal more than that. Stop by for a cup of hot cider, MEET THE ARTIST, PURCHASE HOLIDAY GIFTS for the “artistic soul” (yours included), and learn more about just what it is that DIX BAINES does all day at:

Thank you to all who participated in the Dix Baines Annual 5×7 Auction.  We had a great time and were excited to see all 12 of the offered paintings find new homes.  The Auction is held each year in conjunction with our Studio event “NOTES AND BRUSHSTROKES” the second week of November and we auction 12 new original oil 5×7 paintings by DIX BAINES. Paintings are sold unframed, with starting bids at $150.  Additional bids are in increments of $25.  This is a great way for all collectors, both new and seasoned, to acquire some wonderful gems.  This year we had collectors bidding from Colorado all the way to the East coast, as well as South to Texas.  We hope that you will  plan to join us next year and
