Whether or not you believe in the magic energy of vortexes, any visitor to Sedona, Arizona will immediately be struck with just how beautiful the area is. The red rocks with the green juniper trees set against the azure blue skies are just breathtaking.
A few years ago I spent time in Sedona doing some plein air painting. I got up early in the morning or went out again in the late afternoon to catch the light I love so much.
This past week, I revisited my photos and sketches from the trip and decided to paint some of my favorite areas again. This time, the paintings are a little larger and have some heavy impasto paint to add texture. I just had so much fun recalling the trip and the time and places while I was working.
Check out these paintings of two of the four vortex rock paintings. Click on the paintings to see closer views which show the texture of the paint. Of course, they’ll be for sale on my Etsy shop soon. I still need to paint the last two sites in the series, Airport Rock and Boynton.
Thanks, Sean. It’s a beautiful subject to paint to begin with.
