Sometimes an image captures the eye of an artist and they are drawn to paint it over and over again in various formats and sizes.  As every completed painting brings the artist to a new place in their creative development, no two paintings can or are exactly the same. Just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico is a beautiful church called Canoncito.  It is an image and a place that draws Dix Baines repeatedly and one that he has visited in paintings from large to small.  Having worked in Interior Design and Architecture for ten years, prior to embarking on a full time career as an artist, architectural images have an added pull.  Images of faith, such as Canoncito, which are monuments to individual’s faith, doubly so.  To date all, but one of Dix Baines’ paintings of Canoncito have sold.  The only one available is the 11×14 “Canoncito” and is currently available through The Hayden Hays Gallery (http://www.haydenhaysgallery.com). – Kathlyn Gogarty-Baine

“As a former Project Designer, with an Interior Design Firm for 10 years, architecture will always draw me in as an artist.  The churches of the Southwest are particularly intriguing,however,  as the architecture not only connects with me, but the thoughts of the commitment and hands of faith that built these buildings inspire me. These churches dot the Southwest and over the years I have had the opportunity to paint a number of them”. -DIX BAINES

TODAY MARKS 14 YEARS SINCE I WALKED AWAY FROM A CAREER IN INTERIOR DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE AND INTO A CAREER AS A FULL-TIME ARTIST. IN 2001, “SOUTHWEST ART MAGAZINE” REFERRED TO IT AS A “LEAP OF FAITH”.  REFLECTING BACK OVER THE PAST 14 YEARS, THAT IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.  EVERYDAY IS A NEW LEAP OF FAITH, AS I WORK TO CONVEY TO MY AUDIENCE AND ONTO THE CANVAS WHAT TOUCHES ME AND WHAT I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT. PAINTING IS ABOUT DEVELOPING A SKILL, BUT IT IS ALSO ABOUT PUTTING A BIT OF THE ARTIST SOUL ONTO THE CANVAS AND HOPING THAT SOMEONE CONNECTS WITH IT.  NOT TOO LONG AFTER WALKING AWAY FROM MY DAY JOB, I BEGAN SHOWING THE MCLARRY FINE ART GALLERY.  RECENTLY, THESE FOUR PAINTINGS SOLD AT THE GALLERY.  A NICE WAY TO COMMEMORATE THE 14 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.
