The outdoors is both a workplace and sanctuary for artist Dix Baines.  It is out and about where he researches and paints images to bring back to the Studio.  The small paintings generated, that he calls “sketches” and I call done, are essential in giving him reference on color that is not picked up with a camera.  The combination of having been on location, smelling the smells and seeing the grandeur, along with the sketches and photos, gives him everything needed to create a larger piece in the Studio.  The Green River, located in Utah, is one of Dix’s favorite locations to drop a fly line and draw breath from the beauty that surrounds him.  This past autumn trip provided him with all he needed to paint this beauty that is now available through the Broadmoor Galleries.
