Finally I visited the red rocks of Sedona. They were so foriegn at first (still are actually.) It really makes me realize how a painter's choice of subject matter is like a relationship. You wouldn't kiss someone right away...you have to get to know them. Understand a little about them. Know what makes them tick. It's the same with painting... or writing...or probably any creative endeavor. That relationship (painter to subject) is an intimate bond. You have to really feel passionate about your subject. That said, I LOVE a good field.
Today all 30 painters will be at the Quick Draw from 10-12. If you are in town drop by and visit. We will be at the Sedona Heritage Museum.
One last note... yesterday I was down at the cathedral rocks and happened upon this friend... a rattlesnake on the rocks.
