1001 Nights Santa Fe
I stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico, always and forever looking for new ideas for creating my contemporary southwest landscape wall art. How I came to creating this southwest New Mexico landscape painting of 1001 Nights is this. While walking in the heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico, I saw this wagon surrounded by this prominent old-world courtyard garden setting. I instantly knew that I wanted to create “my version” of this quaintly picturesque landscape scene. Being from magical Sedona, I thought how cool it would be to do something different, instead of my traditional Sedona landscape paintings, well, this is the result of that. Out of view is a southwest field of Prickly Pear Cactus.
1001 Nights Watercolor
This particular scene inspired me to use the medium of watercolor rather than oil or acrylic. I wanted to be sure to do justice to the detail and to capture the feeling of the adobe walls on this fantastic B & B, that I felt when I initially delighted in this setting. You can find this amazing Sante Fe style landscape garden directly across from the oldest church in America, the “San Miguel Mission.” which, by the way, I also painted in watercolor.
I hope this scene touches your heart in the same way that it did mine, and if it does, I would love to hear from you!

Contemporary Sedona Landscape Paintings
While I love painting with watercolors, my current love is using acrylics, both heavy body, and liquid acrylics. Creating Sedona landscape paintings and any form of Sedona art is my current direction.
