Sedona 2016

Sedona Arts Center’s Plein Air Invitational:
Every year, the Art Center invites top landscape plein air painters to paint on-location in the Sedona, AZ region.
This was my 9th year!!!!
For me, Sedona, AZ is an all-time favorite place to paint.
From the obvious red rock backdrops, to the rich riparian areas along Oak Creek and others,
this place dazzles and challenges even the best outdoor painters.
Here’s me in the Grasshopper Point State Park.
This afternoon was when, “Roots and Rocks,” “Autumn Sycamore,”
and “Up and Over” came to be. Here, I’m painting, “Up and Over.”
And below is the entire body of work including the
little black and white pre-sketches I commonly will do before painting
