Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools
Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools is in Sedona’s red rocks, where the sun kisses the earth with its fiery embrace. Each step along the rugged trails unveils a canvas of vibrant hues and vivid landscapes, a symphony of colors that dance before my eyes this where Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools came to life.
With every hike, I am greeted by a new spectacle of nature’s brilliance, a striking and memorable scene that begs to be immortalized on canvas. The mystical aura of this land, with its dramatic cliffs and luminous skies, fills me with inspiration beyond measure. It’s as if the air I breathe is infused with the essence of creativity, urging me to translate the beauty surrounding me into extraordinary works of art.
In my studio, surrounded by the tools of my trade, I embark on a journey of creation fueled by the images etched in my mind’s eye of Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools. With each brushstroke, I strive to capture the essence of this magical place, to convey the same sense of wonder and awe that fills my soul every time I set foot upon its sacred ground.
The creative process is not always easy. There are moments of doubt and frustration when the vision in my mind seems just out of reach. But I persevere, drawing upon the energy of the landscape itself to guide my hand and infuse my work with its radiant spirit.
For this latest piece of Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools, a scene of a sun-drenched canyon bathed in the warm glow of twilight, I knew that perfection would require patience and persistence. Four versions of the painting came to life on my canvas, each one a unique interpretation of the beauty that had captured my imagination.
And finally, after countless hours of labor and love, I knew that I had found it—Sedona’s Seven Sacred Pools, the painting that captured the essence of this place in all its brilliance and splendor. It is a masterpiece of colorful artwork that shimmered with the same brilliance as the landscape itself, a testament to the power of nature to inspire and uplift the human spirit.
My mentor, Claudia Hartley, told me it was the best I’ve done when I asked her to critique this painting. While that pleased my ego, I was not convinced it was complete. I felt that something was missing, but what? Then it hit me…add some yellow to the midground where the green abstract forms are, and suddenly, it all came together. After I did that, I instinctively knew I was done!
