Sedona series #2

Sedona series #2
Oil on canvas
8"x8"
SOLD

Living in the east, the skies out west seem unbelievably blue. That blue, along with the green foliage and red rocks of Sedona left me with a strong impression of a heightened reality, a landscape too vivid to be true. I may have exaggerated the colors in this painting but please forgive me, I was dazzled by what I saw.

I must go to Sedona! Love how you handle your paint with the push and pull of realism, impressionism and abstraction. Have especially enjoyed this series.

Gorgeous!!!
I still remember how shocked I was when I moved from D.C. to Colorado, to realize that here the sky is truly blue. Vivid blue. I never get tired of it.

I visit Sedona in 2004 - adored the colors and shapes. I am torn between this version and the 3rd one. They are all wonderful.
