Rustic Adobe, Sedona


#194/365 Paintings

The sky here is like a tribe of people with changing moods and personal agendas. It moves from the purest blue and then suddenly a symphony of clouds, rain — emptied out to the wonderful smells of coolness in the air. The adobe structures are built to enjoy the continuous theatre that is Sedona and the Southwest.


Project notes: This is my last painting in Sedona. Off to Santa Fe to paint many wild horses. And a few adobes for the rest of the month. Wild.

Tlaquepaque, Patio De La Capilla, Sedona


#193/365 Paintings

After the “high” of meeting with Monty Wison at the El Portal (see painting 192), I walked around the beautiful Tlaquepaque  arts and crafts village. I took as many photos as possible. I was most captivated by this patio. The arch entrance really made me feel like I was walking into a hidden pocket of Barcelona. So lovely and intimate. Of course, being on a trajectory with destiny, I ended up talking to goats at the farmers market. But on the way, each architectural experience was it’s own world.


To new subscribers: In case you missed the announcement, I’m taking weekends off 365 as I travel this summer. Sometimes you’ll have 2 paintings as I catch up here and there. Just FYI. Thanks.
