Cathedral Magic is a Sedona Vortex
Cathedral Rock is Cathedral Magic and is a Sedona Vortex. One might claim that Sedona began 350 million years ago. That’s how long it has taken for Nature to form our ancient red formations by earth thrusts, sea changes, and erosion forces. Or maybe 1000’s of years ago, when primitive hunter-gatherers painted their wall art, of course, I don’t imagine them using oil or acrylics and doing contemporary Sedona landscape paintings, as I have and I’m sure they didn’t make Sedona art prints either

They evolved into the Native Americans we know as Sinagua, who farmed and traded with faraway tribes. In a Faraway place and time, the ancient wind began to blow rose-colored sand grains into magnificent mesas of crimson that ultimately birthed this formation, Vortex, and pinnacles, sculpted by wind and water into monuments of Timeless Beauty called Sedona. And this is where Cathedral Rock lives.
Different Versions of Cathedral Magic
Cathedral Magic is just one of the cool whimsical versions of this iconic formation known as Cathedral Rock. I cropped Cathedral Magic from the original which is “Fire in the Sky.” I’ve painted Cathedral Rock in nine different versions. “Creekside Cathedral” which is the one that Warner Bros. licensed from me to use for their new media series “Snatchers.” SNATCHERS is a horror comedy series about high schooler Sara, who wakes up pregnant…with an alien baby. Now she’ll have to team up with her ex-best friend Hayley to fight the extraterrestrial threat and save the world. Another version is Sedona’s 1st Light.
Then there is this Vortex
I created this southwest Sedona landscape painting of “Cathedral Rock“ from a photo given to me by some folks I met while dancing at the “Spirit Room” in Jerome, AZ. We started talking, and they said they just hiked Cathedral Rock photographing it. I asked if I could use it and do a painting of it and they said they’d be honored if I did, so I did! One of the other versions of this landscape of Sedona’s Cathedral Rock is Church House Rock.
Cathedral Rock is the #1 destination location for Sedona Weddings. With that being said, Red Rock Crossing with the Oak Creek in the background is absolutely breathtaking. In fact, out of ALL the locations in this magical place, we call Sedona. This was where I personally was married!
