Sedona’s Saloon Artwork
This contemporary landscape painting of Sedona’s Saloon artwork first lived in the foyer of my home, located in the Village of Oak Creek. Those who live here refer to it as the “Village.” When I first moved to magical and memorable Sedona, I was featured in a local entertainment paper” “Kudos,” which IS the place to find out what is going on in Sedona. In it, I stated that if anyone wanted to learn about the Giclee process, from scanning to reproductions, I would share my knowledge for free. So the first person to show up stepped into my home, looked at the original “Saloon,” and said, “I built that Saloon.” Come to find out that his folks owned the franchise of Pinnacle Steakhouse, and he oversaw the construction.
Donny Blackburn entered the scene that day, a figure whose impact would extend far beyond that initial encounter. Little did I know at the time, Donny wasn’t just anyone; he was an artist of remarkable talent. It wasn’t until later that his true prowess became evident. His expertise and guidance proved invaluable in my endeavor to capture the essence of Cathedral Rock, of which I later called “Creekside Cathedral,” the iconic vortex of Sedona’s landscape.
Under Donny’s mentorship, I embarked on a journey of creation, delving into the intricate details of southwest oil painting. With each stroke of the brush, I found myself guided by his wisdom, honing my skills and refining my vision. Together, we breathed life into the canvas, infusing it with the vibrant spirit of the Creekside Cathedral.
The resulting masterpiece is a testament to Donny’s influence and skill as an artist and mentor. “Creekside Cathedral” stands as a tribute to the natural wonders of Sedona and the power of collaboration and guidance in the world of art. In Donny Blackburn, I found a teacher and a friend—a beacon of inspiration whose impact will forever shape my artistic journey.
Sedona’s Saloon artwork is made up. This wall art watercolor landscape of this Saloon does not exist in Sedona, nor did it ever. I created Sedona’s Saloon artwork landscape art because locals asked what a Saloon could look like had it been built here. This is my interpretation of that! I believe they call that an “Artist License.” The actual location of this Saloon is in “Trail Dust Town,” Tucson. Known as the original Cowboy Steakhouse, it opened in 1962 and quickly became a staple of Tucson culture. It has a unique “old west” atmosphere and a family-friendly attitude. Locally owned and operated, the restaurant still serves the best steaks in Tucson, cooking them over natural mesquite wood. This image of Sedona’s Saloon is available in canvas prints, metal & paper. See Sedona Cactus, Pitiado & Tucson Periwinkle for more of my watercolors. The frame on the original has some light scratches, hence the low price for an original!
