1001 Nights Santa Fe
I stopped in Santa Fe, New Mexico, always and forever looking for new ideas for creating my contemporary southwest landscape wall art. How I came to making this southwest New Mexico landscape painting of 1001 Nights is this. While walking in the heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico, I saw this wagon surrounded by this prominent old-world courtyard garden setting. I instantly knew that I wanted to create “my version” of this quaintly picturesque landscape scene. Being from magical Sedona, I thought how cool it would be to do something different instead of my traditional Sedona landscape paintings. Well, this is the result of that. Out of view is a southwest field of Prickly Pear Cactus.
1001 Nights Watercolor
This particular scene inspired me to use the medium of watercolor rather than oil or acrylic. I wanted to be sure to do justice to the detail and capture the adobe walls’ feeling on this fantastic B & B that I felt when I initially delighted in this setting. You can find this fantastic Sante Fe-style landscape garden directly across from the oldest church in America, the “San Miguel Mission.” which, by the way, I also painted in watercolor.

My first love was painting with watercolors; however, my medium of choice now is heavy body and liquid acrylics. Discover my vivid, mystical landscape paintings here.
