My first attempt at using oils was Creekside Cathedral. When I first arrived in Sedona in 2004, I was only painting in watercolor, and I wanted to be known as a Sedona artist. So, I then met an artist by the name of Donny Blackburn, who took me under his wing and taught me how to create an oil painting.
Variations on Cathedral Rock
This image of Cathedral Rock is one of my favorites, and so I’ve created this oil painting in 6 different other versions. Sacred Reflections, Fire in the Sky, Church House Rock, Cathedral Rock, Sedona’s 1st Light & Cathedral Magic. Cathedral Rock captures the timeless Beauty called Sedona. Iconic is Cathedral Rock, come to Sedona and see it first hand. This painting of Creekside Cathedral shows off the west side of Cathedral Rock, and of course, art prints are also available, as canvas prints & metal prints.

What’s cool is that this landscape painting was the one chosen by Warner Bros.for their media series “Snatchers.” which 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.
The fingers rock formation at Cathedral Rock is sometimes known as “The Lovers.” So, as the story goes, a very long time ago, a Great Spirit watched a couple constantly arguing. Then one day, he had the lovers turn around and look out into the world at all the beauty that surrounded them. Great Spirit asked them to count their blessings. From that day forward, they have been in constant harmony. This framed original 34” x 28” x1.5” Creekside Cathedral canvas is available.
