Bidding Closes

As Dix Baines and I share experiences about our respective disciplines, paintings and music, we always come back to the same conclusion and that is the importance of consistent practice. It is through the continued practice that the skill expands and improves, as does the enjoyment of the practice. Each year we celebrate what we have learned by hosting “Notes and Brushstrokes.”

As the “Brushstrokes” part of this annual event, Dix Baines creates a selection of original 5×7 oil paintings and offers them through an auction with starting bids at $150. Bidding can take place at the event or online. Kathlyn Gogarty-Baines is the “Notes” part of the event and this year will play a piano recital of selections from the great master Ludwig van Beethoven.

It is always appropriate to include one of Dix Baines oil paintings of a trout in the auction, as this is where it all started.  When one takes the time to look at the water, it is amazing how much color can be seen both on the fish and the water itself.
