“Lizard Head Rock”
“A Beautiful Morning at Tlaquepaque”
This remarkable print from a Carl Dalio original oil painting, depicts a view in Fay Canyon, just northeast of Sedona. This plein air painting, one of several paintings created for the Sedona Plein Air Festival 2013, captures the power of rugged Arizona red rock country.
Carl describes his experience in the canyon the day he painted the image: “As I hiked into the canyon, this magnificent rock formation soon came in to view and I quickly set up my easel on a slope above the canyon trees. I was truly captivated by the stunning peacefulness of the canyon environment. High above me, circled a collection of ravens having their familiar conversations in the morning air. Like the hull of a mighty ship riding an ocean of red and green…solid rock, color, and light emerged as thunder solidified.”
This print from an original oil painting by Carl Dalio, depicts a recognizable rock formation (along with Snoopy Rock) towering over Uptown Sedona. Snoopy can be seen lying on his back in the lower right hand portion of the painting. This view was painted on location (plein air) on the first day of the 2013 Sedona Plein Air Festival.
