Portrait: Thunder Mountain 9x12 oil

Thunder Mountain looms over the little town of Sedona, Arizona.  Also known as Capitol Butte or — and this is my favorite — Greyback, you can see it for miles.  I can see it from the hilltop in my community ten miles south of Sedona.  It’s a commanding presence.  Dwarfed beneath it is Chimney Rock, a three-pronged spire of red sedimentary rock.   I’ve painted Chimney Rock many times, but never from this vantage point.
