“HOW DID you get your start?” This is the question Kristin Hoerth of Southwest Art Magazine poses in her editor’s notes of the October 2012 issue. It is a question I have asked myself and one with an easy answer. I remember the exact moment when the collecting began for Dix and I. Years ago we attended one of our first holiday miniature shows at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Upon walking into the gallery, I was immediately drawn to a grouping of three little paintings, each not bigger than 4″x3,” of children in a pumpkin patch. I spent the entire evening looking at those paintings and reminiscing about our own children and the many outings we took.  We ended up purchasing two of the paintings, which were the first original paintings we ever bought. I learned about the power of art that night and how it can transport you back to a time or place of importance and joy. At the time, those paintings took me to moments with our children; the beach, the museum, the zoo, the park….Today, as those same children have flown from the nest, those paintings take me back to years gone by when our house was filled with the happy noise and chaos that surrounds three busy children. – Kathlyn

Most of us are familiar with Claude Monet’s amazing garden scenes, and particularly his stunning water lilies, but the fact that Monet was also an avid gardener may be less well known.

“Monet’s endeavors as a gardener were an essential part of his identity as a painter and … his artistic vision drew strength from his passion for his garden….painting his garden was ‘an act of faith, an act of love, and humility, in which he struck a harmony with nature that allowed him to identify with creation and become absorbed in it.” -from Monet’s Garden in Art by Debra N. Mancoff

As an avid gardener and creator of ponds, DIX BAINES, likewise, understands well being “absorbed by creation.” His Studio reaches far beyond the four walls where is easel stands, into the yard where we have created our own sanctuary, with three Koi ponds, pathways, flowers, trees and in general, the miracles of life. These images have become the subjects of his current paintings and these gems are being included in our Summer Garden Party and Auction.
