Offered as large-scale panoramas are Creekside Cathedral, Sedona’s Cathedral Rock, Cathedral Moon, and Fire in the Sky.
Creating Contemporary Sedona Landscape Paintings from Photographs
I never go out and paint “Plein Air,” which means to paint on location when creating new contemporary Sedona landscape art. Although the Sedona Arts Center sponsors a “Plein Air” contest yearly, attracting 1,000’s of art enthusiasts. The reference I used this time for this Sedona landscape painting of Sedona’s Cathedral Rock was from some folks I met while dancing at the “Spirit Room” in Jerome, AZ. We started talking, and they said they just hiked Cathedral Rock and took this photo. I asked if I could honor them by doing a painting of it, and they said sure!
Sedona’s Orchard Industry
Most agriculture in early Sedona was for home consumption, or a limited seasonal market in Flagstaff and the boomtown of Jerome. Using water from Oak Creek, both the Native Americans and our first Anglo settlers irrigated small patches of ground to raise food for their families. Every homestead had a vegetable garden and a collection of chickens, turkeys, and pigs. Cattle provided beef as well as milk and butter. But it was fruit growing — mainly apples and peaches — which played the most significant part in the early Sedona economy.
Sedona’s Cathedral Rock was Once a Volcano
Once a volcano 15 million years ago, it is a famous landmark on the Sedona skyline and is one of the most-photographed sights in Arizona, the USA. Offered is this canvas print in 2 different formats.
