Sedona Landscape Painting – Church House Rock – Inspired by Van Gogh
As a Sedona artist, I find inspiration in Van Gogh’s later works and have created a contemporary landscape vortex called Church House Rock. My specialty is creating magical desert landscapes in acrylic. The sky in this particular artwork was done using a technique involving both hands simultaneously, which I learned from artist/teacher Bonnie Hartenstein during a workshop in Sedona, AZ.
Church House Rock is Loving Vincent
Discover Loving Vincent is a 2017 biographical animated drama film about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh, particularly the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film. It was written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. The Polish Film Institute funded the development partially through a Kickstarter campaign. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas. Using the same technique as Van Gogh, a team of 115 painters created it. The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
Church House Rock – Endless Confusion
Cathedral Rock, a magical Sedona Vortex, was called “Court House Rock” on some early maps, and Courthouse Butte was called “Church House Rock.” This has caused endless confusion ever since. Unwittingly, a cartographer made this mistake in 1984. I’m grateful and delighted to have crafted this desert image of another Sedona landscape painting wall art offered as a Sedona canvas print with a prickly pear cactus. Gazing at this desert landscape almost appears as a daydream.
Other Adaptations of this Whimsical Southwest Sedona Landscape
“Cathedral Magic,” “Cathedral Rock,” “Fire in the Sky,” “Sedona’s Sacred Heart and Soul,” “ Sacred Reflections,” and “Sedona’s Crescent Moon Ranch” are different versions of this Vortex iconic formation known as Cathedral Rock. “Creekside Cathedral,” which is the one that Warner Bros. licensed from me to use in their new media series “Snatchers.” This horror-comedy series is about high schooler Sara, who wakes up pregnant…with an alien baby. Now, she’ll have to team up with her ex-best friend Hayley to fight the extraterrestrial threat and save the world.
