Sedona Studies

Sedona was such an adventure. We ate out and painted and laughed so much! Especially when Kelley's brand new easel box and tripod almost blew over a ledge into Oak Creek in a gale force wind gust. Not funny but funny if you know what I mean, and it did have a happy ending.  On Wednesday we drove up to Jerome to check out the incredible old car/truck graveyard at the Gold King Mine. Carol soldiered on despite the overcast light and painted trucks while Kelley and I poked around the galleries and the shops in Jerome. There was so much to see and too much to paint but I did some studies of the fantastic rocks 
from the balcony of our fabulous condo at the Hyatt Pinion Point. We had a 180* view of the rocks. Wow! I'm posting them one at a time along with some photos from the trip.
