Recently, I was in Arizona and I had a chance to visit Sedona and go hiking in the hills surrounded by red rocks formations. The views were stunning, in particular with the contrast between the rocks and the evergreen vegetation. On the way up, I had time for two quick sketches.
A few photos I took along the trail.
Many artists are working in Sedona.
Red rocks and the cowboy artist – sculpture by Clyde “Ross” Morgan – October 2002
This sculpture is a tribute to Joe Beeler, one of the founders of the the CowboyArtists of America in 1965. This organization was founded in Sedona by four western artists: Joe Beeler, Charlie Dye, John Hampton and George Phippen. An annual show is now held each year in Phoenix.
