Red Rocks Abstract


#190/365 Paintings

“We didn’t inherit the earth. We are borrowing it from our children.” ~ Native American Proverb

I had to throw those red rocks into the mix. There are so many natural caves in the red rocks of Sedona. I sometimes think I’m seeing an adobe home carved into the rock. Same feel, just a bit higher in the sky.


Project notes: Traveling and painting has it’s logistical challenges. We are in a hotel room at the moment after a lovely vacation home with a stunning view of the red rocks of Sedona. I meet with an Adobe builder tomorrow and move into another inspiring home on Saturday. I look forward to having a large table to spread out the project out on and really dive into this next week. See you after the weekend. Happy weekend everyone!

    The houses and the rocks also blend into each other in the Four Corners area, where early homes were carved into the rocks (and probably inspired adobe building on the flat below them). If you get to that area – Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, and many, many smaller areas, you will find wonderful light and vistas where it’s often hard to tell whether you are seeing ancient rock dwellings or simply cracks in the rocks.
