This is a smaller oil painting inspired by my own photos taken of the wine country in Napa and northern California. The rolling hills and vibrant colors seemed suited to a very deep horizontal perspective. This painting has impressionistic roots, specifically from my muse Pierre Bonnard, but I like to add my own Hispanic-inspired touch by using primary colors and rich, lush subject matter, a la Frida Kahlo and other contemporary Hispanic artists. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished dark gray edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Dixie

Dixie is a writer of poetry and fiction, and her imaginative narratives come to life in her energetic paintings. The imagery in Dixie’s work unites characters, themes, and settings in a unique and sometimes surprising manner. Multiple yet simultaneous storylines and time periods converge in these jovial paintings. Dixie’s work has a vibrant patchwork quality shaped by her fascination with collage and found materials. The strong influence of Pierre Bonnard, one of Dixie’s favorite artists, also has a visible impact on her stylistic choices. Articulating patterns and surfaces with dream-like layers, Dixie conveys movement, feeling, and time in her eclectic work.
