|"Montezuma Well #1" oil on canvas (c) Janet Tremblay 2009|
And on occasion those photographic memories may inspire you to paint or animate. My Fiance and I had created 2 paintings each of different places close to the Camp Verde area. The first painting I created was of a stair case cascading into Montezuma well.
It had been raining and Travis and I took shelter under one of the cliff sides and I liked the composition of the stone steps down to the water. Montezuma Well is part of the native American ruins associated with Montezuma Castle. It is a large well that collects rain and has stone shelters on the inside walls. Clay pottery, arrows and other remnants of the Natives that once lived there can still be found amongst the desert cliff dwellings.
