oil on linen panel
This painting was done from a photo I had taken of a courtyard in Sedona, Arizona on a trip there several years ago. There is a beautiful shopping area in town called Tlaquepaque that is reminiscent of the architecture of Mexico. I really enjoyed painting this scene with its afternoon shadows. I am not painting as much at this time as I am trying to catch up with repainting the house--not as much fun as painting on canvas, but necessary. I have decided to stop selling my paintings at art shows from now on. I will reduce the prices and sell what I have at a local gallery. The shows were getting to be too much work!
