Plein Air in Sedona, Day 4

The day started out to be great - a lot of sun, few clouds. Our group went to Slide Rock, where I did this painting looking down from above and slightly upstream. I am fairly happy with it, although it seems a little too abstract for me.

Well, it was so cold and rainy off and on that my friend Karen Werner and I decided we'd had enough of the weather, and we packed up and went back to the Sedona Art Center to paint from a photo - and this is the photo we chose. No, it's not a Sedona scene, but it's near Karen's home.


  1. I just realized from your post that you and Karen Werner are in the same class! The weather sounds miserable, but I'm sure you are having a great time. Love the pastoral scene. Your values and colors are beautiful!

  2. Hi there Martha!!
    It was a joy to meet you and Karen. I hope that you will come back and visit Sedona. I still feel that your little painting from Slide Rock is wonderful. I can clearly see that it is a beautiful out cropping down by the creek.
    I really enjoy your work.

  3. You are doing great at the workshop. I love your Slide Rock painting. The weather sounds like a challenge.
