In a world of beautiful hotels, there are some that are downright gorgeous—such as The Arizona Biltmore, known as the Jewel of the Desert, built in 1929. One of the facets of the jewel is of course the artwork, such as these two companion murals, interpreting First People's symbology with an Egyptian flavor.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
