I've been playing hooky from the easel for awhile. We've been remodeling our guest bath...need I say more? Like all good remodeling projects--it took way more time and effort than we thought it would. But we finished just in time. Our daughter and her beautiful family came from Portland for a post-Thanksgiving dinner. It was a great visit and, of course, it gave us some hugging time with our five month old grandson, Grayson. Lots to be thankful for.

Here's one from the archives, some amazing stone cliffs near Sedona, Arizona. We used to hike in these mountains when we lived a short drive away in Flagstaff.

Hope you had a wonderfulThanksgiving.

Beautiful painting Don!

I wondered if this was in Sedona when I first saw it in my dashboard feed, and I was right! Your painting captures the unique geology perfectly.

I used to hike in Sedona when I lived in Flagstaff (and Prescott) as well - it's a really wonderful place to spend time, isn't it?

Morning Don,
Post-Thanksgiving...great idea and I bet they made the drive with much less traffic to contend with.
I can hardly believe it has been five months since you introduced your grandson to the world. Time flies, as they say, and more so when we get older, "I" say!
We enjoyed seeing Sedona on our way west back in 2003. It was in January and beautifully cool the late morning we arrived. Such scenery!! Made it a tough drive, as I'm sure anyone who has seen the place will agree.
Great painting, Don. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your constant encouragement, Pierre!

Hi Sonya, thanks. Yes, Sedona area is fabulous. Too bad there's a town there--it should be a National Park. When did you live in Flagstaff?

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Gary. Yes, time flies, eh? I can't believe it has been almost twelve years since we moved from Flagstaff to California, and over four since our move back to Oregon.

I always enjoy seeing your paintings in progress, and your great photo tours of Portland.
