Sitting Pretty 300

This inviting sitting area was discovered in Jerome, Arizona, alongside one of the historic old buildings from the original mining settlement. Jerome is perched almost a mile high (5200 feet) on top of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Flagstaff. Jerome began as a copper mining camp, once known as the wickedest town in the west. Jerome was incorporated as a city in 1899. It was once the fourth largest city in the Arizona Territory. The population peaked at 15,000 in the 1920�s. After suffering the ups and downs of the copper market, the Phelps Dodge Mine finally closed in 1953. The remaining 50 to 100 hardy souls promoted the town as a historic ghost town. In 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government. Today Jerome is a thriving tourist and artist community with a population of about 450. Many of the old buildings have been converted to shops, art galleries, restaurants and hotels.
I am an exhibiting artist in southwest Florida and my art has been exhibited in galleries in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina and is in collections nationwide. I create abstract photography, mixed media photo painting, acrylic mixed media, and acrylic paintings. Many would make great decorative throw pillows or shower curtains. I've even had a couple abstracts made into my personal cell phone covers. Please check out my Facebook page Doodleng Art by Sharon Eng for announcements and more information about my art. This image would be a good selection for business or corporate wall art and decor or in any home.
