The WELCOME COWBOY COUNTRY sign – by Gordon Derbyshire, a Canadian artist from British Columbia. He was born in the west Kootenay town of Trail in 1961. His first years were spent in the mining town of Riondel but at the age of nine his family moved to Westbank in the Okanagan Valley. His interest in painting started as a young man. His formal training came in the form of private art lessons from the ages 13 to16. He also attended Okanagan Summer School of the Arts workshops after high school.
The process of creating art itself has been a lifelong education. His work reflects his unique vision developed during decades of drawing and painting. Growing up in the “west” with its Native and pioneer history complete with ghost towns and western culture has influenced the subjects that Gordon paints, the rugged mountains and coastlines, beautiful valleys, ranch lands and desolate prairies along with the inhabitants both past and present.

Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
