Montezuma's Castle

Debra Sisson Oil Painting Landscape Desert Western Sedona Arizona Ancient Ruins

Oil on hardboard, 8" x 10"
The colors and shadows of these ancient dwellings were fascinating to paint.  My daughter recently visited Arizona with a friend from Phoenix. I asked her to take lots of pictures and she did!  I chose this subject first because of the colors and also the feeling of forms within forms going back into space.  Montezuma's Castle is a National Monument near Flagstaff and is actually misnamed  by early settlers because Montezuma was never there.  It is one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America.
