Dix Baines paints a variety of subjects in his expressive light infused style. Characterized by his bold brushwork and dramatic use of light and color, his paintings depict landscapes, villages, barns and adobe buildings, fishing scenes and the river environment as a whole. A pond, is the latest feature at his studio. Small works of Koi and water plants will be on display in the Gallery. Dix will also have work featured at the Loyalhanna Watershed Auction this same weekend.
